PENDLETON — An open house at the Pendleton Air Museum will coincide with Pearl Harbor Day.

World War II veteran Bob Stangier and Dorys Grover of the civilian auxiliary Dorys Grover will be on hand to talk with visitors. The free event is Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 21 S.W. Emigrant Ave., Pendleton. The public is invited to drop in for cookies, hot beverages, to share stories and to view the new displays. There will be other veterans at the museum in the afternoon, including those who served during the Korean War, Vietnam, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Desert Storm. 

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is Dec. 7, 1941. It honors those who lost their lives when the Japanese bombed the United States naval base. President Franklin D. Roosevelt referred to it as “a date which will live in infamy.”
