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.
