On April 17th, 2023, Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Everest Austerman aboard the USS Porter releases a floating lantern over the Baltic Sea in honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day. ~ "'On International Holocaust Remembrance Day and every day, the United States stands with Holocaust victims, their families, and their descendants. We remember. We honor their stories. We will face down the hate and the lies that carry in them the terrifying echoes of one of the worst chapters in human history. And for generations to come, we will continue to defend our foundational values as a nation – freedom, equality, and dignity for all human beings' said President Joseph R. Biden Jr in his 26 January 2023 Statement of International Holocaust Remembrance Day". ~
