    Veteran Who Survived Pearl Harbor Dies During Veterans Day Ceremony

    WEST BEND, Wis. -- A World War II veteran who survived the bombing of Pearl Harbor collapsed and died during a Veterans Day ceremony in Washington County.

    John Weinberger, 85, collapsed Tuesday morning as he stood at the county's Historical Society's Veterans Memorial.

    Relatives said they were shocked by his death, but they drew comfort from knowing he died surrounded by his fellow veterans

    Joyce Lex said her father was a true veteran who was very patriotic and loyal to his country. She said she'll remember his sense of humor and his resiliency.

    Weinberger was one of two Washington County veterans who survived the Pearl Harbor attack.

    In 2006 he returned to Hawaii to place a wreath 50 yards away from where he stood that day aboard the USS Whitney.
