Batavia veterans honored on Pearl Harbor Day
BATAVIA – Frank McKee was only 5 years old when the Japanese launched an attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. But he still remembers hearing about the horrific details of that day.
“I remember the news of the Pearl Harbor attack,” said McKee, a resident of the Heritage Woods of Batavia assisted-living community and an Army veteran.
McKee and other veterans living at Heritage Woods were honored Friday by Batavia’s American Legion Post 504 as part of the American Legion’s Gifts To The Yanks That Gave program. The national program was started in 1944 to remember hospitalized war veterans.
