World War II veterans honored in Fultondale, Saturday
FULTONDALE - AL —
The city of Fultondale recognized World War II veterans, Saturday, on the 72nd anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
American Legion Post 255 celebrated the veterans with a luncheon ceremony.
Fultondale Mayor, Jim Lowery, talked and presented a plaque to be placed on the wall next to the city's 9-11 plaque.
The veterans who attended say they remember Pearl Harbor all too well.
"It's been a long time, you forget things," World War II veteran, Gilmer Davis, said. "But, it means more to my country than it does to me. I would go back and do the same thing again if I had to."
Friday, Mayor Lowery dedicated a memorial and a flag to honor those who fought for our freedom.
