The way it was: Pearl Harbor Day -- 1995

Dec 9, 2013 - Staff

As the 50th anniversary year of World War II's end neared its close, Fremont County veterans were treated to a countywide slate 18 years ago this weekend at the Robert A. Peck Arts Center.

Named "Last Hurrah," the event featured music, speeches, exhibits and veterans of all ages in uniform, including many from World War II and the Korean War.

The veterans greeted the public and explained displays of war memorabilia including medals, weaponry, military papers and news clippings from their time in service.

Last Hurrah took place not only in conjunction with the Word War II victory year but also on the 54th anniversary of the attack by Japanese forces on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
