War veteran Richard Chatman wants something done to save a memorial that was built over 70-years to honor over 700-war heroes in Michigan and Canada.

On this 75-year anniversary of Pearl Harbor he says it has been vandalized and now falling apart.

Over a dozen veterans gathered at the Old Michigan State Fair Grounds in Detroit this morning, hoping they can save the piece of history.
