In Plymouth, the Ladewig-Zinkgraf American Legion Post 243 will host their annual Pearl Harbor Day remembrance program Sunday at 11 a.m. at the Legion post building, 40 Stafford St.

The featured speaker for the program will be Lawrence Bray, a World War II Navy veteran who served at Pearl Harbor. The program will also recognize Plymouth resident Stuart “Bud” Sweeney, a Pearl Harbor survivor.

The Retired Enlisted Association, Chapter 76 Sheboygan will sponsor the city of Sheboygan Pearl Harbor Remembrance Program Sunday at General King Park, 1601 S. Seventh St., Sheboygan.

Doors will open at 6:30 a.m. for coffee and dunkers with the program beginning at 7 a.m. The program will begin with the posting of the colors by Prescott-Bayens American Legion Post 83.

“Our program is simple but important” said city of Sheboygan Pearl Harbor Remembrance Program Coordinator Mike Liebelt, “We need to remember what happened and how this one event thrust the United States onto the world stage as a true world power and protector of democracy, peace and freedom.”

The program will close with the retirement of the colors by American Legion Post 83 Color Guard followed by a rifle volley from The Disabled American Veterans, Jensen-Van Thruler Chapter 15 and the playing of “Taps.”
