NORWALK - The city of Norwalk held a ceremony this morning to mark the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

It was 69 years ago today that the Japanese attacked naval forces stationed in Hawaii.

Mayor Dick Moccia proclaimed today a day of remembrance for everyone who served during World War II.

Also honored were the 17 men from Connecticut who died on that day.

Officials believe that last known surviving veteran of the attacks on Pearl Harbor from Fairfield County was James Benham from Darien. Benham, who died this past June, was 92.
