MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker plans to travel to central Wisconsin to attend a ceremony honoring Pearl Harbor veterans.

Walker is scheduled to speak at a ceremony Friday afternoon at the state veterans home in King. Clyde Stephenson, a former Marine who now lives in Appleton, also is scheduled to speak about how he was assigned to guard Oahu beaches from a possible land invasion and fired on Japanese planes.

Department of Veterans Affairs spokeswoman Carla Vigue (vee' - jue) says the agency expects about two hundred people will attend, including two of the half-dozen or so Pearl Harbor veterans who reside at the home.
