PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island veterans are getting a sneak peek of a World War II documentary that will premiere in Pearl Harbor for this year's 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack.
The Rhode Island-based World War II Foundation produced the documentary , "Remember Pearl Harbor."
The nonprofit wants to thank local veterans for their service before taking the documentary to Hawaii. It will be shown at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Providence.
Veterans and current service members can go for free. General admission is $13.
The event is dedicated to Raymond Haerry, one of the last living crew members on the battleship USS Arizona during the attack. Haerry, who was interviewed for the documentary, died Sept. 27 in Rhode Island.
The documentary's official premiere is Dec. 4 in Pearl Harbor.
