MISSION, Kan. -- Seventy years ago, Dec. 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, plunging the United States into World War II.

Late Wednesday morning, a ceremony in Mission, Kan., honored those who died.
There are now only four remaining Pearl Harbor survivors still alive in Kansas.
In the past seven years, fifty have passed away.

In 2004, there were 54 survivors; that's when Pearl Harbor Park, located near Maple and Martway Streets, was dedicated in Mission, Kan. The four survivors all attended Wednesday's reunion and shared their memories.
