Pearl Harbor Remembrance Ceremony

  • USS Kidd Veterans Museum 305 South River Road Baton Rouge, LA, 70802 United States

Over 2,500 lives were lost on Dec. 7, 1941 when Japanese fighter planes attacked the U.S. base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Rear Admiral Isaac Campbell Kidd, Sr., after whom the USS KIDD (DD-661) is named, and 45 men from Louisiana were among those killed on that fateful day. Join us for our annual Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Ceremony and help us honor and pay tribute to the service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice on this “date which will live in infamy,” as described by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Immediately following the ceremony, there will be a memorial observance hosted by the U.S. Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit Baton Rouge in honor of the crew of the USCGC WHITE ALDER.
