Annual Dinner to Honor Pearl Harbor Day at Greenbelt American Legion Post 136

The 70th Anniversary of  the "date which will live in infamy," will be honored Wednesday, December 7 at Prince George's County's biggest American Legion Post, Greenbelt American Legion Post 136. Every year on December 7 at 5 p.m.,  the Department of Maryland conducts its Fall 2011 National Defense Field Forum and dinner to remember those who fought and were killed when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941.

"This dinner honors the survivors and fallen heroes of Pearl Harbor. Today, we keep the American Flag outside at half-mast to remember the first horrific attack on our soil and  pay homage to those that died fighting for our country and to those who lived to tell their story," said Steve Messer, Greenbelt American Legion Post Manager.

It's fitting that the dinner is held in the historic landmark of Greenbelt which was the first of three planned garden communities built by the U.S. Government during the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal era in 1937, four years prior to the United States' entrance into WWII after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

 All are welcome to attend. Dinner tickets are $12.50 each and are available at the door.
