      Hello Jerry,

      Thank you for your comment. We host a Pearl Harbor ceremony every year – it is sponsored by one of our local VFW chapters. Please be sure to check our website for the latest updates regarding this year’s ceremony. I anticipate we should have details available by late November. Thank you!
