5th Annual Flag Day Open House at the Iwo Jima Memorial

December 7th  -  Pearl Harbor Remembrance Ceremony

December 14th  -  Wreaths Across America
The Iwo Jima Memorial Historical Foundation will be hosting two very special events in December at the National Iwo Jima Memorial.  

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day will be observed on Saturday, December 7, 2013.  The attack, which took place on December 7, 1941
at America’s Naval Base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, marked America’s entrance into World War II.  More than 3,500 Americans were killed or
injured.  The Foundation will observe the 72nd Anniversary of the attack and pay tribute to the American servicemen and women whose lives
were lost and those who were injured.

Foundation Volunteers will be on hand at the Memorial, from 11:30 am and after the ceremony to speak with visitors.  Historical displays about
the Pearl Harbor attack will be on hand for viewing.  A ceremony will take place at 12:30 p.m.  The Special Guest speaker will be Mr. Harry
Rosenfeld who is a Navy Veteran of WWII.  He served aboard the USS Nevada and is an Iwo Jima Survivor.  Before his enlistment, the USS
Nevada was one of the ships damaged in the attack on Pearl Harbor.

National Wreaths Across America Day will be observed on Saturday, December 14, 2013 at 12:00 noon.  All are invited to gather together to
honor veterans during the holiday season as part of the annual Wreaths Across America Day (WAA).  Specially designated wreaths for the Army,
Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine, and POW/MIA will be placed at the memorial during a ceremony that will be coordinated
simultaneously at over 750 participating locations all across the Country.  

The Wreaths Across AmericaTM story began over 20 years ago when the Worcester Wreath Company from Harrington, Maine initiated a tradition
of donating and placing wreaths on the headstones of our Nation’s fallen heroes at Arlington National Cemetery.  The Wreaths Across
America's mission is to Remember the fallen, Honor those who serve including their families who sacrifice, and Teach our children the cost of
the freedoms we enjoy each day. Wreaths Across America is a national non-profit organization.  If you’d like more information about this
organization, visit  

Information about either of these ceremonies can be obtained by calling Gary Roy at (860) 291-9666 or visiting
