This year marks the 78th anniversary of Pearl Harbor and the Virginia War Museum in Newport News is hosting its annual Pearl Harbor Remembrance ceremony on Saturday.

The ceremony is free and open to the public.

The 1941 attack by the Japanese Imperial Army was dubbed by Franklin D. Roosevelt as “a date that will live in infamy” and led to the United States entry into World War II.

Guest speaker for the remembrance ceremony is Maj. Gen. Ken Bowra, a retired Special Forces veteran who served in the Vietnam and Afghanistan wars.

The event is also the only Pearl Harbor ceremony in the Tidewater area open to the public, according to the Virginia War Museum’s news release.

In addition, the museum will have other events including a living history display with the Wake Island Defenders and the 26th Cavalry The Philippine Scouts. The living history event is included with museum admission. Adults are $8, military, veterans and senior citizens are $7 and children at $6.

The annual Pearl Harbor Remembrance Ceremony is at the Virginia War Museum, 9285 Warwick Blvd., on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 4 p.m.

For more information about the ceremony or other Pearl Harbor remembrances, visit the Virginia War Museum’s website or call 757-247-8523.
