SHELBURN, Ind. (WTHI) - It's been 76 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor.
One Wabash Valley man marked the occasion.
Ralph Dale is a veteran of the Vietnam War.
He's from Shelburn, Indiana.
That's where he set up a display, along with the help of others.
Dale placed flags and crosses for every Shelburn vet who died in service.
He says it's important that the younger generations understand what veterans gave up for their freedom.
"My dad was in the army. He was on his way to Pearl Harbor on the ship when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. The ship behind him and the ship in front of him were both shot down," Dale said.
He has 10 flags on display, honoring the different branches and organizations in the military.
