    Legion Honors Pearl Harbor Fallen

    WEST SENECA, N.Y. – A number of Americaan Legion Posts held services Dec. 7 in honor of those who died and fought in the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.

    Among them was West Seneca Post 735, where veterans throughout the area gathered to pay homage to those who lost their lives in the attack, Time Warner Cable News in Buffalo reported.

    Keynote speaker and Vietnam veteran Paul Rudnicki spoke on how America was changed forever after the attacks.

    The TV station quoted him as saying: “The one thing Pearl Harbor did, the movement against any American involvement vanished almost overnight because the lesson was very clear – We’re either going to have to work together or we’re not going to get anywhere.”
