About 50 people gathered in Ansonia’s Veterans Park Wednesday to mark the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
And as we lose more and more of the generation of Americans who fought and won World War II with each passing day, speakers at Wednesday’s event noted, it’s more important than ever to observe the occasion that brought the country into the conflict.
The Dec. 7, 1941 surprise attack by Imperial Japan’s air force and navy killed more than 2,000 men and crippled America’s armed forces in the Pacific early in the war.

Kids didn’t have to wait long for a new playground to enjoy — a Seymour company donated and built one at no charge within weeks.
But 10-year-old Shayla Kovacs is still waiting to play.
The playground is not fully accessible to children with disabilities — and city officials say changes to fix it won’t come until next spring at the earliest.
