This Holiday Season, Give the Gift of Intrepid
 

On December 7, 1941, Japanese planes dropped bombs on Pearl Harbor in an unprovoked attack against the United States. The attack claimed more than 2,400 lives. Today, on Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we remember those who died in service to our country, as well as the men and women who took up the fight for freedom in the war that followed the attack.

The Intrepid Museum will commemorate the 74th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor with events throughout the day, all free with Museum admission.

A special ceremony on the ship’s fantail will include a wreath laying by Pearl Harbor survivors. Museum President Susan Marenoff-Zausner and Pearl Harbor survivor Clark Simmons will give remarks, and several Intrepid former crew members will be in attendance. The ceremony, open to all Museum guests, will begin at 11:00am.

The Museum will also broadcast a live feed of the commemoration ceremony at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii. The ceremony, co-hosted by the National Park Service and the U.S. Navy, will feature Pulitzer prize–winning historian David Kennedy. The broadcast will be shown in the Allison & Howard Lutnick Theater at 12:40pm.

Tour guides will share Stories from Pearl Harbor, a 15-minute talk about the heroes, myths and legacy of the attack at Pearl Harbor. The talk will be offered on the hangar deck throughout the day—ask at the Information Desk for times.

Intrepid is a fitting place to remember Pearl Harbor. Its keel was laid on December 1, 1941, just days before the attack, and construction of the ship was expedited so that it could join the war effort. Intrepid went on to survive five kamikaze attacks and help win pivotal battles in the Pacific War. Please join us on board Intrepid to learn more about this history and honor those who served.

All U.S. veterans, active military and retired military receive free admission to the Museum, thanks to the generous support of Bank of America.
