Arizona Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
The 78th Anniversary of the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor will be observed at Wesley Bolin Plaza in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday December 7, 2019, at the State’s World War II Memorial.
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.
