More than 100 veterans and civilians joined together Dec. 7 for the first-ever commemoration ceremony at the long-lost battlefield site in Ewa Beach. Ewa Community Church's Rev. Tom Fujita blessed the site as others participated in a wreath presentation to honor the servicemen and civilians who died during the attacks of Dec. 7, 1941.
