Several years ago I met members of the Lilac City Pearl Harbor Survivor Association. They kind of adopted me. Sharing their stories and their memories has been an honor.Today a few of them will be present for a special ceremony at Riverfront Park.

Only 9 members remain of a group that once boasted 100 members.Each death diminishes our community. Here are links to a few stories about this remarkable group.
