Day of infamy, day of memory

Ladewig-Zinkgraf American Legion Post 243 marked the 73rd anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor with a ceremony Sunday morning at the post on Stafford Street.

The ceremony featured an address from World War II Navy veteran and Elkhart Lake resident Larry Bray (left), along with a video presentation on the Pearl Harbor attack Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s address to Congress the next day seeking a declaration of war against Japan and terming the attack “A date which will live in infamy.”

The ceremony then moved outdoors, where Pearl Harbor survivor and Plymouth resident Stuart “Bud” Sweeney (above) tossed a remembrance bouquet into the Mullet River and the Legion honor guard fired a ceremonial salute (left), followed by the playing of “Taps.”
