The program began at 9:30 a.m. but included an extended break for socializing before resuming at 11 a.m. Mark Spivey wrote a great story featuring two nonagenarian veterans. The cold, windy weather drove me home early.

  1. What a wonderful day! To hear the many stories that my Grandfather, Mr. Tennyson Moore, Sr. had to share about Pearl Harbor was truly something. We are very bless to have my 98 year old Grandfather here to tell the story.

    Great photos.
