Recognizing Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day


December 6, 2017

Dear Editor,

The governor of the great state of Wyoming, Matthew H. Mead, has proclaimed that Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017, be designated as Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

It is earnestly recommended by the few remaining veterans in Wyoming of the attack on Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941, that we honor the many heroes that fell that day at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and the many that were wounded. It is also requested by the same surviving veterans that all school teachers in this area bring to the children’s attention what happened at Pearl Harbor and that is was the first day of World War II.
