About three dozen people gathered in a soft rain Friday night for a memorial service commemorating the 71st anniversary of "that day which will live in infamy"—Pearl Harbor Day.

Christopher Hughes of the American Legion Post 29 said the ceremony is held each Dec. 7 "so that we never forget" the sacrifices made by more than 3,300 servicemen who died in the early morning attack on Pearl Harbor.

"One of our main messages is that we not forget," Hughes said. Veterans, particularly those now returning from the war in Afghanistan and the Persian Gulf "have an even greater respect for our country" and that Americans should honor their service.
