Pearl Harbor...70th Anniversary

Missing Man Formation

I attended the Pearl Harbor Memorial today.  I have been meaning to do this for years and am so glad that I finally did.  Approximately 120 Pearl Harbor Survivors attended today's ceremony.  I was amazed by this high number.  It was a moving ceremony with a few survivors speaking, acknowledgement of all the survivors and their location during the attack, Secretary of Navy speaking, wreath presentation, and color guard.  The USS Chung Hoon passed through Harbor by the Arizona Memorial.  There was also a Marine Rifle Salute & Taps which I find just as moving as the Missing Man Formation.
