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.

A New Jersey man who drove to Shelton last year and beat his wife’s lover with a baseball bat won’t serve any prison time for the assault.
The man, Chadwick Adams, 28, faced up to four years behind bars after pleading guilty to first-degree assault in the case Sept. 15.
But Judge Frank Iannotti opted not to imprison Adams after a 40-minute sentencing at Superior Court in Milford Friday during which he concluded Adams, who has no other criminal convictions, is unlikely to break the law again.
“I hope I’m right,” the judge said before handing down an eight-year suspended sentence in the case.

An Ansonia man accused of trying to torch his Shelton workplace last year — then concocting a story claiming he was kidnapped — will decide next month whether to accept or reject a plea offer in the case.
Allister James, 33, has been behind bars since last June, after a Shelton detective obtained an arrest warrant charging him in connection to a fire at Honey Cell, a Bridgeport Avenue packaging company where he worked.
