LIVESTREAM: Pearl Harbor Day Memorial Ceremony

December 7, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

77th Pearl Harbor Memorial at Patriots Point

Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum’s annual Pearl Harbor Day ceremony will be closed to the public this year (2020) in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  The community is encouraged to watch the event through a live video stream on December 7, at 11 a.m. on www.facebook.com/patriotspoint.org.

The service, organized together with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 10624, will include a wreath-laying, tolling of a bell, and a traditional gun salute to honor the 25 known South Carolinians who were killed during the 1941 attack by the Japanese.

First Lieutenant Patrick C. “Clebe” McClary III, USMC (Ret.) will serve as the featured speaker.  Seriously wounded while fighting in the Vietnam War, Lt. McClary has become a symbol of courage and hope to many audiences around the world.

The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor lasted an hour and 15 minutes.   More than 2,403 U.S. personnel, including 68 civilians were killed.  In total, more than 300 U.S. aircraft and 19 Navy ships were destroyed or damaged, including eight battleships.
