SMYRNA — The 81st anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, an event that plunged the United States into World War II, will be observed at Lake Como on Wednesday at noon.
The lake area includes a memorial, built in 2018 by Vietnam veterans across the state to honor the survivors of Pearl Harbor.
During the ceremony, Bobbi Baldwin, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps in Vietnam, will offer a prayer and remarks, along with fellow Vietnam veteran Terry Baker.
Other participants will include veterans from Firebase Lloyd in Townsend, as well as the Vietnam Veterans of America’s state council and chapters 83 and 850.
“Special thanks to the Smyrna (Veterans of Foreign Wars), Smyrna Mayor Robert Johnson, Joanne Masten and Town Council, Delaware Rep. Bill Carson and (retired) Delaware Sen. Bruce Ennis,” said Mr. Baker. “We honor those of the Greatest Generation that placed duty and honor above self.”
The outdoor event is open to the public.
