USS Utah Memorial Sunset Service

PEARL HARBOR (Dec. 6, 2016) Delton E. Walling, a Pearl Harbor survivor, and Rear Adm. Margaret Kibben, Chief of Navy Chaplains, engage with one another before the USS Utah Memorial Sunset Service on Ford Island, at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Dec. 7, 2016, marks the 75th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor and Oahu. Navy Region Hawaii hosted the event, to remember those who served aboard the Florida-class battleship, and honor the 54 crew members still entombed in the sunken vessel. The U.S. military and the State of Hawaii are hosting a series of remembrance events throughout the week to honor the courage and sacrifices of those who served Dec. 7, 1941, and throughout the Pacific Theater. As a Pacific nation, the U.S. is committed to continue its responsibility of protecting the Pacific sea-lanes, advancing international ideals and relationships, well as delivering security, influence and responsiveness in the region.
