A small crowd (but the largest one in recent years) gathered at Little Turtle Waterway at 12:55 p.m. on December 7, 2015 to mark the 74th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor that led to the United States’ entrance into World War II.
In 1994, Congress designated Dec. 7 as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
The Cass County Veterans Council holds the observance at 12:55 p.m., which is 7:55 a.m., the time of the attacks in Hawaii. The ceremony included a prayer by Frank Miller, whose father was a Pearl Harbor survivor. A bouquet of roses was tossed from the 3rd Street Bridge into the Wabash River as a tribute.
