Pearl Harbor Day
Perch Base attended the Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day event on 12/07/2016 at the Wesley Bolin Plaza by the
Arizona State Capitol to place wreaths during the ceremony.
We placed two wreaths. One for the WW2 Submarine Veterans and one for Perch Base.
VIPs in attendance included U.S. Representative Ruben Gallego, AZ State House Speaker David Gowan, State Representative Sonny Borrelli, Arizona Department of Veterans' Services director Wanda Wright, State Historian Marshall Trimble, who was also the Master of Ceremonies, Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services Legislative Liason Dave Hampton, Navajo Code Talker George Willie, Pearl Harbor survivor Marvin Rewerts, and Keynote Speaker Rear Admiral James Symonds, USN, Retired.
Arizona Department of Veterans' Services director Wanda Wright read a proclamation by Governor Doug Ducey, who was not able to be present because he was at the Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day ceremonies in Honolulu.
