Pearl Harbor Day Today was recognized at the Yakima VFW Post 379 with a moment of silence. Post Commander Al Pineta lead the short ceremony Thursday morning. “Gentlemen please join me in a moment of remembrance for all those who perished during Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941. A day of infamy” Pineta says only a handful of Pearl Harbor survivors are alive in Yakima and none are active VFW members. But many were in the past. Thursday marks the 76th anniversary of the attack that killed 24-hundred people and wounded another 12-hundred, while destroying eight of the battleships and a bunch of the cruisers in the Pacific fleet.
As for Pearl Harbor, the oil is still bubbling out of the hull of the USS Arizona. More than one million people still visit the memorial each year.
