Minnesota to recall Pearl Harbor attack

The 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor will be commemorated in the Capitol complex Wednesday.

The 10 a.m. program will be in the Veterans’ Services Building and will include survivors of the attack.

Minnesota Navy Reserve members served on board the USS Ward, which was on patrol when the attack began. Ward sailors sank a midget Japanese submarine, firing the first American shots of World War II. One of the guns sits just west of the Veteran’s Services Building.
