Pacific Grove Tide, CA Nov 26, 1943
Plan Rites For Pearl Harbor Day
Community Will Honor Men Who Gave Lives in Country’s Service
Pacific Grove will pay tribute to the men represented by gold stars on the community’s service flag in a special memorial service on December 7, Pearl Harbor Day. Plans are now being made by the Women’s Auxiliary for Civilian Defense, under the leadership of Mrs. Clyde F. Dyke. Last year, on the first anniversary of the Japanese attack, an impressive service was held at the local high school honoring the men killed in the first year of the war. Parents of the men were present. The tie and place of this year’s observance have nto yet been announced. It is planned, however, to pay special tribute to the men who lost their lives in the service during the second year of war. Last year, there were three honored: Thomas L. Gall, lost in an airplane accident in Pearl Harbor; Arthur P. Moran, lost in a submarine in Asiatic waters; and Robert Newman, killed in action on Guadalcanal island. This year there are three more: Royce Clemens, killed in an airplane crash in California; Glenn Howland, killed in an airplane crash in Texas; and Glenn Il Pierce, wh died in the service while stationed in the San Francisco area.
