SCRANTON -- This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

A special ceremony to recognize World War II and all veterans was held Wednesday morning at the Lackawanna County commissioners meeting in Scranton.

Retired Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Bracey led the pledge of allegiance at the meeting. Lt. Col. Bracey flew more than 20 missions over Berlin, Germany during World War II. He also went on to serve in Korea and Vietnam.

Joe Sylvester also served in Vietnam.

Both men were presented with pins marking the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Some survivors of the attack have gathered in Hawaii for the anniversary.
