FRG hosts Pearl Harbor memorial ceremony

Some 400 people participated in Pearl Harbor memorial ceremonies Dec. 7 at Republic Airport (FRG) in New York, as five survivors of that attack were honored at the American Airpower Museum by members of the Air Force Association and the US Navy.

The highlight of the hour-long program included the blessing of the roses by a Navy chaplain, a flight aboard the GEICO Skytypers T-6, and the subsequent dropping of the flowers over the Statue of Liberty to mark the time of the attack, airport officials said.
