National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

Today is Wednesday, December 7, a National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day! It is a day to remember and honor the 2,403 victims who were killed in the Japanese surprise air raid attack on the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Territory on December 7, 1941. The U.S.S. Arizona was completely destroyed, and the U.S.S. Oklahoma capsized. A total of twelve ships sank or were beached in the attack, and nine additional vessels were damaged. More than 160 aircraft were destroyed and more than 150 others damaged.

On this day which will live in infamy, we honor those souls who gave all in the name of our United States of America!  

“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”
- Attributed to Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

“There’s nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer.”
- Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle

Celebration to honor WWII Hero on his 90th Birthday

Grand Ledge's own retired WWII Navy Veteran Wally Travis is turning 90 years old! His family, including daughter Patty Lance of Nana-N-Paws, is inviting everyone to celebrate with them with a potluck lunch at the American Legion Post in Grand Ledge on Sunday, December 11 starting at 2:00 PM and going until he gets tired.

His family would love it if you stopped in and talked military with him and thank him for his service. He LOVES talking military! If the Navy would let him re-enlist, he would be on a ship as we speak!

If you or a family member are one of our few remaining WWII Veterans, please stop in for a visit. He would love to meet you!
