The annual memorial service, commemorating the bombing of Pearl Harbor, at the Pearl Harbor Memorial Park in Chalmette, which is the only Pearl Harbor Memorial Park, on mainland, USA, will not be held, at this location.
William Detweiler, Consultant to the President for Military and Veterans Affairs, WWII Museum, has invited the ceremony to be held at the Museum, for the 70th Anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, as well as the Sons & Daughters of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association (S&D of the PHSA), have accepted the invitation.
Craig Taffaro, Parish President of St. Bernard, who speaks every year, along with S&D of the PHSA President Debra J. Barry, have been invited to do so at the Museum.
On December 6, representatives of the S&D of the PHSA will place a wreath, in remembrance of those who perished on that infamous day, to be viewed on the 7.
The ceremony, on December 7, begins at 11 a.m., in the Louisiana Pavilion of the Museum. It will be preceded by a presentation by Navy Band New Orleans, beginning at 10:30 am. The public is invited to attend.
