    By Steve Liewer

    In past years, Pearl Harbor survivor Ed Guthrie of Omaha would sometimes attend the annual memorial ceremonies in Hawaii to meet old friends and remember Navy comrades who died that day.
    This year, Guthrie, 98, is going for his family.
    He and his wife, Janet, are leading 19 family members to the commemoration of the surprise attack by Japanese naval forces on U.S. military facilities in Hawaii on Dec. 7, 1941.

    “All the grandkids wanted me to go,” Guthrie said before his departure Thursday. “This will probably be the last time.”
