On Dec. 7, 1941 air and naval forces of Imperial Japan attacked America without warning at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
On Dec. 7, 2006, Pensacola area Pearl Harbor survivors will join with other residents for Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day at the National Museum of Naval Aviation on board the Pensacola Naval Air Station. According to Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Chairman, Oscar Nunn, the annual observance is even more significant this year because there are only 18 known Pearl Harbor survivors, which will be recognized during the ceremony, still living in the Pensacola/Escambia County area.
The annual observance will commence at 10:30 a.m. Featured speaker will be retired Vice Adm. Gerald L. Hoewing.
The ceremony is free and open to the public.
