A Dedication and Remembrance at the CGJ WWII Museum
December 7, 2012
On Friday, December 7, at 10:00 AM, the Camp Gordon Johnston World War II Museum will dedicate two flagpoles donated by Woodmen of the World. This dedication will be held at the new front entrance and a small commemorative plaque will be placed between the two poles.
After the flag dedication there will be a short ceremony to remember Pearl Harbor, the attack by the Japanese that caused the United States to enter WWII. The flag will be placed at half mast as Taps is played. It will be followed by a recording of Roosevelt’s “Day of Infamy” speech; the original was heard by this nation on the chief method of communication of that time, the radio.
Coffee and cookies will be served after the ceremony.
At 11:30 the movie Tora Tora Tora will be shown in the Museum’s Movie theatre. This film is being shown as a visual remembrance of the attack on Pearl by the Imperial Japanese forces on December 7th, 1941.
All are invited to come and, as always, admission is by donation and donations are always welcome.
