Pearl Harbor National Memorial, Navy Region Hawaii, and Pacific Historic Parks have announced the theme for this year’s National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Commemoration: Valor, Sacrifice, and Peace.
The goal of the commemoration and supplemental events is to ensure that future generations will understand the valor and legacy of those who perished and those who fought throughout the war. The commemoration also highlights the importance of the peace that brought a reconciliation that continues to create a better future for all. From arch and bitter adversaries, Japan is now one of our closest allies.
Pearl Harbor National Memorial, Pearl Harbor and its partners preserve, interpret, and commemorate the history of World War II in the Pacific from the events leading to the December 7, 1941, attack on Oʻahu, to peace and reconciliation.
Now is the time to say prays for and thank all deceased, wounded, or survivors who fought so valiantly at Pearl Harbor, and to salute all men and women in the armed forces for their commitment, courage, dedication, and sacrifice to help keep the US strong and safeguard our liberties and keep the peace.
Signature also salutes our three veterans on staff, Denyze Gutierrez, Amanda Ray, and Megan Harris and congratulates them for their selfless service.
