KINGSTON – The Survivors Club in Kingston gathers every year to offer U.S. veterans of foreign wars the chance to talk about their experiences and to honor those who have died. The event – held every Dec. 7 – is organized by John Larkin of Kingston American Legion Post 395 and Mike Favata of Kingston Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 283.
Larkin said every member of the club has a glass with his name on it, and it's only used once a year at this dinner. He said when a member dies, the glass is broken at the dinner so it can never be used by anybody else.
The cost to join the Survivors Club is $1 for a lifetime membership. Call 287-8437.
Larkin said even though most Pearl Harbor veterans are deceased, it's important to remember that day and the people who were there.
