WWII Veterans To Be Honored In Everett

December 2, 2015



WWII Veterans from all services are welcome to attend.

If you know of a World War II Veteran in the greater Everett area, the folks at Naval Station Everett would like to honor them next week. Here’s the invitation and what you need to know to attend.

Naval Station Everett will hold a ceremony on Monday, Dec. 7 at 10:45 a.m. to remember the attack on Pearl Harbor that occurred December 7, 1941. Service members will honor World War II veterans at the base Grand Vista Ballroom. World War II veterans from all military branches are warmly invited to attend with their families.

During the event, there will be military veteran speakers, a wreath dedication, historic display tables of memorabilia, and a salute to special guests from Pearl Harbor and World War II.

World War II veterans and their families are welcome to share pictures, uniforms, cruise books, medals, and other items if they choose.

This event is not open to the public, so veterans and their families should notify the base if they are interested in attending. The Navy is interested in reaching out to as many survivors and family members as possible. Those who do not already have a military identification card will be asked to provide their full name, driver’s license state and number, and date of birth.

RSVP by contacting the command front office at (425) 304-3325 as soon as possible.

Military uniform for the event will be Service Dress Blue for ceremony participants, Uniform of the Day for military guests, and Service Dress as appropriate or permitted for military retirees (business attire for civilians).
