WI gov. honors Pearl Harbor vets


MADISON (WKOW)-- Governor Scott Walker plans to travel to central Wisconsin Friday to attend a ceremony honoring Pearl Harbor veterans.

Walker is scheduled to speak at a ceremony Friday afternoon at the state veterans home in King. Clyde Stephenson, a former Marine, who now lives in Appleton, is also scheduled to speak about how he was assigned to guard Oahu beaches from a possible land invasion and fired on Japanese planes.

Department of Veterans Affairs spokeswoman Carla Vigue says the agency expects about two hundred people to attend, including two of the half-dozen Pearl Harbor veterans who reside at home.
