In remembrance of Pearl Harbor there will be a ceremony at 10:55am in Wesley Bolin Plaza on Monday, December 7 with a flyover from the CAF Airbase Arizona.

Immediately following will be  a talk by azcentral‘s Shaun McKinnon about his experience interviewing the last survivors of the USS Arizona in 2014. McKinnon traveled to Pearl Harbor and witnessed four survivors toast their fallen shipmates with champagne donated by President Gerald Ford. One of the champagne flutes was taken by U.S. Navy divers and left on the Arizona.
