Celebrating Veterans Day in Hawaii has the possibility of being both unique and memorable as there are so many historic sites to pay respect to the fallen and learn about the service of the living. Honoring men and women for the sacrifice of service is an opportunity for us to recognize and celebrate national heroes. What better place to observe the day of homage than in the state that endured the vicious attack that began World War II.
On November the 11th, The Battleship Missouri Memorial will bring all Veterans Day and Armistice Day observances around the world to a close with a special ceremony on the ship’s Fantail just before sunset on Tuesday, November 11.
As an official Regional Site for the observance of Veterans Day by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, this year's ceremony aboard the retired USS Missouri will pay tribute to the sacrifice of all our nation’s veterans – past and present. Special attention will be paid to our most recent generation of men and women who have bravely chosen to take a stand and protect our freedom and liberty in America’s current conflicts.
The ceremony will feature special remarks by Rear Admiral Richard L. Williams, Commander of Navy Region Hawaii and the Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific, and Vice Admiral Robert K.U. Kihune, USN (Ret.), former chairman and current member of the Board of Directors for the USS Missouri Memorial Association.
We say mahalo on behalf of a grateful nation forever indebted to our fallen warriors and their families and all who continue to serve
