Veterans remember lives lost at Pearl Harbor

Posted:

On the 72nd anniversary, Siouxlanders took time to observe Pearl Harbor Day. The American Legion Post 697 hosted Saturday's ceremony inside Sioux City's public library in Morningside.

More than two-thousand American lives were lost in 1941 when Japanese forces attacked troops stationed in Hawaii. For those still living, and other Americans who served, events like these are an opportunity for all veterans to reflect.

"That generation is kind of passing on," said Richard Storm, Commander of Post 697. "So, it's a memory of their actions and involvement. It's very meaningful to us."

Post 697 has been sponsoring this event for a number of years. They say their one of the few legions that still holds a ceremony to remember Pearl Harbor.
