You're Invited.... Together, We Remember "A Day that will Live in Infamy"
Pearl Harbor Day of Remembrance 72nd Anniversary
Guests of Honor Pearl Harbor Survivors Edward Hammond and Abe Stein.
Sunday, December 8, 2013, 2 p.m. Coast Guard Station Fort Lauderdale
7000 N. Ocean Dr., Dania, FL (John U. Lloyd State Park) Reception to follow.
Seventy-two years after the Japanese stunned the world with a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor and pushed the country into World War II, the last remaining survivors of the attack still living in South Florida will be honored. Local dignitaries and veterans groups, along with the U.S. Coast Guard and Spruance Division, U.S. Naval Sea Cadets, will participate in the ceremony, sponsored by Broward Navy Days, the non-profit organization that supports and honors our seagoing services in South Florida and sponsors Fleet Week Port Everglades each year. A memorial wreath will be put out to sea and a reception will follow the ceremony. The public is invited to attend. "There are few survivors still with us 72 years later," said Mary Anne Gray, president and executive director of Broward Navy Days, "but we will remember and pay tribute to all the heroic men and women who were in Pearl Harbor on that day."

UPDATE On the Online Exhibit: Mementos from a Cave in Saipan
We are elated to announce that the pages in the Japanese WWII Photo Album have been translated thanks to Museum volunteer Bruce Fuchs, USNR. We now know the names and locations of the Japanese soldiers in the photographs. Bruce approached the Morikami Museum in Delray Beach, and they translated the writing on the photographs. A big thank you to Veljko Dujin, Curator of collections at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens!
