    This telegram informed the family of George David Smart that he lost his life in the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Dec. 7, 1941, is a day that will live in infamy. “Remember Pearl Harbor” was the war cry that stirred the souls of men and women and awakened a “sleeping giant.”

The Miracle of America Museum, in Polson, remembers that fateful day every day with it’s permanent and poignant exhibits, but on the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the public is invited to a free program at 6 p.m. Beginning in the public meeting room, will be the showing of a slide show and song presentation of Montana’s own Marshall Catch, “The Ballad of the USS Arizona.”

We will then proceed to the WW11 section to view the special tribute wall with emphasis on David Smart, Polson veteran, whose remains still lie entombed in the hold of the Arizona. Related period memorabilia such as an internment and other war bond posters, weapons, souvenir surrender document, etc.

Back in the meeting room, the classic award winning movie, “Tora Tora Tora” will be shown. Treats are welcome. Due to the length of the evening program, (about three hours) we would like to start promptly at 6 p.m. Teachers are encouraged to give extra credit to attending students writing a special report of the evening.
