A small but significant ceremony was held Tuesday morning honoring those who died in the December 7, 1941 Japanese attack on Hawaii’s Pearl Harbor.
A group of Veterans of Foreign Wars from Port Isabel Post 8791, city officials and employees and a husband and wife, who like to describe themselves as “patriots”, attended the event at the Port Isabel Veterans Park held on the anniversary of the attack.
Most of them said a few words to pay tribute to the victims of the bombing attack which was described the next day by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in his famous “Day of Infamy” speech he made to a joint session of the Congress.
