75th Anniversary

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

The 75th Anniversiary of Pearl Harbor Remembrance ceremony will take place at the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force at 2 p.m. on Sunday, December 4th. There will be patriotic music and a tribute to Pearl Harbor survivors and WWII veterans. Other events include a Twenty-one Gun Salute, Two-Bell Ceremony and presentation of a Flower Wreath.

This 75th anniversary will be even more memorable this year because we will be honoring a Pearl Harbor survivor. He is 100 year old Glover Manning Jr. who joined the Navy when he was 19 and was aboard the USS Rigel when it was bombed at Pearl Harbor. After 20 years in the Navy he retired as a chief Petty Officer and raised his family in Savannah.

Our principal speaker will be Captain Paul Young USN. He was commissioned in 1992 at the University of Nebraska. He has served two tours in command at sea.  Most recently, he commanded USS MCINERNEY (FFG 8) from 2009-2010.  During his tour he led MCINERNEY through a successful deployment to the USSOUTHCOM Area of Focus during which MCINERNEY disrupted more than ten metric tons of narcotics and became the first Navy ship to deploy with the Fire Scout Vertical Takeoff/Landing UAV.  Prior to that, from 2005-2007, he commanded MCM CREW REAPER embarked in USS DEVASTATOR (MCM 6) and USS GLADIATOR (MCM 11), where he deployed to the Arabian Gulf in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
