Black Hills veterans honor one of their own


Saturday marks the 72nd anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. And KOTA Territory veterans brought in the occasion by honoring one of their own.

Folks gathered at the VFW in Deadwood to honor those who served. As they reflected on Pearl Harbor, they used this time to join together and honor Howard Palmer. A WWII veteran that stayed involved with service organizations long after he left the war. He died earlier this year.

His son Ralph Palmer and his whole family came out to honor Howard Palmer.

"It's really a neat thing to be among all the vets here. They talk about the greatest generation; my father was part of that greatest generation serving in WWII and north Africa, Italy, and Germany,"said Ralph Palmer.

Howard Palmer's flag was hoisted on Mount Moriah Saturday and it will fly there everyday, until it gets too worn out. Then the family will take it down and burn it.
