Pearl Harbor poetry by veterans sought [UPDATED]Published 9:13am Thursday, November 29, 2012 Updated 11:17am Thursday, November 29, 2012
Veterans and non-veterans alike, who have ever written a piece of poetry by or about veterans’ experiences, or know of someone who has, are invited to bring it to the ITOW Veterans Museum Friday, Dec. 7.
That day, which commemorates the 71st anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, seems to be uniquely suited as a day to remember veterans of all eras. Selections from the collected poems will be compiled in a blog that everyone will be able to access online and print.
Perhaps more than any other event of the 20th century, Pearl Harbor signified a moment in time when the entire country became united in their concern for the brave men and women who served in the armed forces.
