Posted by Erika Funke on

Each year on Dec. 7, people from all over the world remember the 2,403 service members and civilians who were killed during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. In addition, 1178 people were injured in the attack, which permanently sank two U.S. Navy battleships and destroyed 188 aircraft, according to the National Park Service.

The 78th anniversary will be marked in NEPA at Luzerne County Community College with an event in the Schulman Galley as part of the exhibit, "World War 2: Never Forget: Memorabilia from the collection of George R. Shadie & Alex G. Shadie."  

The exhibit, "World War 2: Never Forget" at the Schulman Gallery at Luzerne County Community College in Nanticoke runs through December 20, with a special program on Saturday, December 7, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.  Admission is free, and participants will be invited to share their stories, as well.
