Gov. Scott Walker visited the Wisconsin Veterans Home in King Friday, Dec. 5, and participated in a ceremony commemorating the 73rd anniversary of the Peal Harbor Attack.
He was joined by several veterans who survived the Pearl Harbor attack.
“The attack on Pearl Harbor is certainly a day that shall ‘live in infamy,’” Walker said. “Today, we remember the courageous individuals who risked or gave their lives at Pearl Harbor in order to protect our freedom. We bear in mind the heroism of the brave men and women of our Armed Forces, past and present, and the debt of gratitude we owe them for defending our nation and our freedom, not just today, but every day.”
The Wisconsin Veterans Home in King is a 721-bed facility that has been serving veterans in Wisconsin for more than 125 years.
