On December 6th, 2016 I had the honor of participating in the Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary Candlelight Vigil and Reading of the Names at the National WWII memorial in Washington D.C. I was one of many people, young and old, who withstood the cold and rain to honor the 2,403 Americans who were killed during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor 75 years ago.
While the weather moved the vigil from the center of the WWII Memorial to beside the nearby Ranger Information building, the significance of the event remained the same as every name of the victims was read, of which I read 90. I think the weather also limited the attendance but it remained a tremendous honor to be able to participate and honor the Service Members and civilians who died on that infamous day.
This video was a live feed by Fox 5, a local Washington D.C. T.V. station, which began airing with me reading names.
