Pearl Harbor survivors honored at ceremony

Sixty-seven years to the day, five men that survived the 1941 Japanese attack on the U.S. Pacific fleet docked in Pearl Harbor were celebrated and honored as heroes at a remembrance ceremony in New Richmond.

For the last 22 years, the Clermont County American Legion has held the annual event as a way to remember and honor the survivors of that December morning that embroiled the U.S. in WWII.

The emotional ceremony, held in the Market Street School building, drew a crowd of more than 150 people.
