Rutland historian to attend Pearl Harbor ceremonies this weekend - WPTZ

A Rutland pharmacist who wrote a book about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor has been invited to Hawaii for 78th anniversary ceremonies. 

"This weekend marks the 78th anniversary of the sneak attack by Japanese forces that killed more than 2,400 Americans and injured many more, spurring the U.S. to enter World War II.
“It forever changed this country,” Irons said of the attacks of December 7, 1941.
Irons interviewed as many veterans as he could for a book he wrote about the war in the Pacific. Titled “Phalanx Against the Divine Wind,” the book project was dedicated to learning more about his late father-in-law’s service to the Navy, and teaching readers about events of the war in a relatable way."
