Pearl Harbor Remembered
By Katie McFadden
On Wednesday, De-
cember 7, Rockaway
remembered Pearl Har-
bor. A ceremony was
held at Memorial Circle
to commemorate the
75th anniversary of the
attacks and to pay trib-
ute to the local military
members who were lost
during World War II.
Councilman Eric Ul-
rich’s office held the
ceremony, which was
well attended for a
Wednesday afternoon.
Local firefighters and
police, veterans, Parks
Department
officials
and members of the
community turned up
for the event, which
featured vocal perfor-
mances by the Schol-
ars’ Academy choir.
Students from Schol-
ars’ and St. Francis de
Sales were on hand to
lay white carnations by
each memorial plaque
of the military mem-
bers who were killed
or lost in WWII as Rob-
by Schwach read the
names off and provid-
ed a bit of background
on each man and their
connection to Rocka-
way.
An American flag that
was flown over the USS
Arizona Memorial in
Pearl Harbor earlier this
year was also flown above
Memorial Circle during
the ceremony. At 12:48
p.m., or 7:48 a.m. Ha-
waii time, the moment
when the attacks start-
ed 75 years ago, a mo-
ment of silence was held
to remember the fallen.
About six WWII veterans
attended the ceremony
and were presented with
certificates from Coun-
cilman Ulrich. Before the
ceremony ended, Ryan
Schwach read President
Franklin
Roosevelt's
Pearl Harbor address.
