On Sunday, Dec. 6, at noon, Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes will welcome veterans and other members of the Greater Mercer County community to a ceremony marking the 74th anniversary of the Japanese air attack on Pearl Harbor.
The event, which is presented by Mercer County Veteran Services in conjunction with the Mercer County Veterans Council, will be held at Catholic War Veterans Post 417, 301 Grand St., Trenton, and the public is encouraged to attend.
Mr. Hughes will give brief remarks at the ceremony, and remarks by retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Donald A. Weyler will follow. This year’s program will also feature the traditional laying of a wreath at the base of the American flag, the laying of a second wreath by the Sons and Daughters of Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, a 21-gun salute by the Marine Corps League, and the playing of taps by Walter Kramarz of the Mercer County Veterans Council.
In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held indoors.
