Thursday, Dec. 7 is National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, and the Crookston American Legion Auxiliary, Unit 20 is encouraging everyone to never forget the Dec. 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.
On behalf of the Auxiliary, member Margee Keller says…
“December 7, 1941 – the attack on Pearl Harbor – was a day that has remained in infamy. Very few service members who personally remember that day are still among us. The American Legion Auxiliary encourages everyone to do what they can to keep Pearl Harbor a part of our national consciousness.
“Many brave service members were asleep or about their morning routines when the Japanese bombers delivered a blow that would decide America’s involvement in World War II. More than 2,400 service members died during the attack.
“We invite you, along with the members of the Crookston American Legion Auxiliary Unit 20, to take a moment and remember the men and women who lost their lives that fateful day.”
