Many Turn Out to Harbor Pearl Harbor Vet

A Bend man has finally received the awards he earned after surviving the attack on Pearl Harbor.   It was the culmination of a Missouri's woman's mission to find her missing father. She diligently used every source she could find to locate Earl Arnold, and she wanted him to receive his Pearl Harbor medal and other decorations from his service during World War II. So, today, 66-years after the war ended, Arnold received his medals. “It means a lot, makes you feel proud.” His daughter, Peggy Fortner was thrilled at the turnout of 75 people to honor him. “I'm thinking that if every citizen in the nation would honor their veterans in such a way, that our youth would be different youth today.”
