Pearl Harbor Anniversary
Rhode Islanders Bring History to Life
PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) -- It's been 63 years since the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, and veterans are gathering for the anniversary today. As part of the remembrances, Lieutenant Governor Charles Fogarty presented Shea High School with the first copy of a DVD set featuring stories of Rhode Island soldiers during World War Two. The D-V-D is called "Voices of Freedom."
"Voices of Freedom" contains the stories of 35 Rhode Island veterans who served at home and abroad during the War. Those interviewed come from all walks of life and represent every branch of the service; from officers to enlisted. The DVD set will be provided to every school and public library in the state.
