BEND, OR -- On December 7th 1941, the Japanese launched an attack on Pearl Harbor which led to America entering World War Two. That infamous attack will be remembered Saturday. Dick Tobiason with Bend Heroes Foundation says they’ll honor the last Bend survivor of Pearl Harbor, Dick Higgins. He says, "I  think the public knows a lot about Pearl Harbor. What they might not know is there are some Pearl Haerbor survivors, although not many. At one time there were six here in Bend, now we're down to one. His name is Dick Higgins." Tobiason added, "Higgins will be the honored guest at our ceremony on Saturday."  The Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day will also honor World War Two veterans.  Tobiason says the special event is at the Bend Heroes Memorial in Brooks Park at Newport Avenue and Northwest Drake Road at 8-o’clock Saturday morning.
