Getting ready for the 75th Pearl Harbor anniversary
All eyes will be on Hawaii this December, when commemorations are held marking the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, an event that plunged the United States into World War II.
HONOLULU - All eyes will be on Hawaii this December when commemorations are held marking the 75 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor, an event that plunged the U.S. into World War II.
The committee planning the 11-day commemoration talked about some of the events that will take place. It will begin with movie nights on the beach, where the public can watch legendary war films.
There will be gala events honoring the survivors as well as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. The solemn event will honor not only five of the remaining Arizona memorial survivors, but the survivors from the other Oahu bases that were hit by Japanese war planes that day.
Because space is limited, the committee hopes to broadcast the event at venues across Hawaii and across the country, possibly Times Square.
