Two Perch Base members, Vice Commander Carl Miner and Event Coordinator David Heighway presented wreaths at the Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day event on 12/09/2023 at the Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza by the Arizona State Capitol.
We placed two wreaths. Carl Miner placed one for the WW2 Submarine Veterans and David Heighway placed the other for Perch Base.
Credit (and thanks!) to David Heighway for taking photos on this page.
Pearl Harbor survivor Ed Miklavcic Sr. placed the Pearl Harbor Survivors' wreath.

Since David Heighway was taking the photos, he didn't get any of himself. The best I was able to do was this photo captured from a video clip by Facebook User Italian Princess. David Heighway is on the right and Carl Miner is on the left.

The Pearl Harbor Remembrance Ceremony was preceeded with a flyover.
