SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY OF PEARL HARBOR TO BE OBSERVED AT WESLEY BOLIN MEMORIAL PLAZA

The Pearl Harbor Observance Committee announced today plans for the annual Pearl
Harbor Day Observance on Wednesday, December 7, 2016, at the State’s World War II Memorial,
located at Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza, 1700 West Washington Street, in downtown Phoenix.
This year’s observance, an annual event staged by the Committee, will mark the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The Japanese Navy launched its devastating strike against U. S. military installations at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii in the early hours of December 7, 1941 — a peaceful Sunday morning — while most personnel were off-duty, or pursuing Sunday morning routines, not expecting an attack. Sweeping in from the north, where they were launched from the decks of six aircraft carriers, two waves of Japanese carrier attack and dive bombers, escorted by Mitsubishi Zero fighter planes, targeted Army, Navy and Marine airfields, shipping and other military installations while torpedo bombers streaked in to attack Navy vessels, principally the U.S. Pacific Fleet battleships, lying at anchor along the east shore of Ford Island in the center of the harbor. The attack left thousands dead and wounded, succeeded in destroying hundreds of aircraft on the ground and in sinking or severely damaging all the battleships on what was known as “Battleship Row” — including the U.S.S. Arizona whose sunken remains can still be seen from the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. Fortunately, the Navy’s aircraft carriers, which were also the
prime targets of the Japanese attack, were at sea on maneuvers or returning from assigned missions.

For the next six months, the United States was on the defensive in the Pacific without an effective fleet to conduct significant operations against the Japanese — until the Battle of Midway on June 4, 1942, where four of the six attacking Japanese aircraft carriers involved in the December 7 Pearl Harbor attack were sunk along with their aircraft and many of their experienced aircrews.

Attendees at the commemoration will observe special military proceedings including presentation of the colors by the POW/MIA/KIA Honor Guard, musical accompaniment by The Veteran’s Band, a flyover by historic warbirds flown by the Commemorative Air Force, Airbase Arizona-based in Mesa, and a special keynote presentation by Rear Admiral James Symonds, U. S. Navy (ret.). According to his U. S. Navy biography, Admiral Symonds piloted the A-6 “Intruder” with the Attack Squadron (VA) 115 Eagles, the VA-196 Milestones and the VA-128 Golden Intruders; served as Air Operations Officer, US 6th Fleet, in Gaeta, Italy; and as Deputy Director of Operations for Counterdrug Operations in U.S. Southern Command, Miami, Fla. His first flag officer assignment was as Director of the Chief of Naval Operations Environmental Readiness Division (CNO N45). He commanded the Medium Attack Weapons School at NAS Whidbey Island, Wash., the VA-165 Boomers, USS Nashville (LPD 13) and USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76). His last assignment on active duty was as Commander, Navy Region Northwest, based in Silverdale, Wash., from July 2007 to June 2010, where he was responsible for operations, Sailor and family services, and facilities on four major Navy installations around the Puget Sound.

Marshall Trimble, noted American author, singer, professor and Arizona’s official state historian, will preside over the event as Master of Ceremonies.

Events such as these continue to educate the public about the significance of World War II and Arizona’s role in bringing the conflict to a successful end, 75 years ago. In 2013, the state unveiled Arizona’s World War II Memorial, at Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza, which includes one 14-inch gun from the U.S.S. Arizona (sunk at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941) and one 16-inch gun from the U.S.S. Missouri (upon whose decks the Japanese signed the instrument of surrender on September 2, 1945, bringing World War II to a close). The two naval guns flank plaques hung on a structure reminiscent of the U.S.S. Arizona’s hull, bearing the names of over 2,000 Arizonans killed in World War II.

The event will begin at 10:55 AM, on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza across from the State Capitol at 1700 West Washington Street in Phoenix, Arizona.
Admission is free. Seating will be limited.
