Eighty-First Commemoration Of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

On December 6th and 7th, 2022, the Pearl Harbor National Memorial will commemorate National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day with a series of events at the USS Arizona Memorial, the USS Oklahoma Memorial on Ford Island, and at the Pearl Harbor National Memorial Park.

The events focus on the sacrifices the Greatest Generation and all those who served in World War II have endured.

Roosevelt said in his December 8, 1941 speech declaring war on Japan, 'a date which will live in infamy'.

Early on Wednesday morning, December 7, 2022, many will gather at Pearl Harbor National Memorial for the 81st Commemoration. The early start marks the moment to the minute 81 years ago when Japanese warplanes descended on Oahu, killing 2,403 service members and civilians, injuring thousands more and dealing a near fatal blow to the Navy’s fleet at Pearl Harbor.

The mostly young Americans who died that day, along with those who served in uniform during World War II or on the home front war effort are collectively known as the Greatest Generation. Their sacrifices reflect the theme of this year’s Commemoration: Everlasting Legacy.

The focus is the importance of remembering Pearl Harbor and how the Greatest Generation saved us from tyranny and brought us peace through reconciliation". ~
