U.S.S. Arizona to be remembered on Pearl Harbor Day - DECEMBER 7
Since the dedication of U.S.S. Arizona Memorial in Veteran's Memorial Park on May 31, 2010, each year on Pearl Harbor Day their crew is remembered. The ship was sunk during Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941. In the surprise attack, 11,777 U.S. sailors and marines were killed on board the ship. Over 10% of the casualties on the U.S.S Arizona were from the four states of Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska. The artifact was brought to Kansas to honor those lost and to offer Midwest families a place to see and touch a piece of the U.S.S. Arizona closer to home than Hawaii.
The remembrance program will be held at NOON, December 7, 2017 at the Atchison Riverfront Park, and is being organized by Navy veterans from the community and supported by VFW Post 1175, Pershing Chapter of the MOAA and Benedictine College ROTC Unit. The tribute will honor the veterans of Pearl Harbor, as well as all U.S veterans and active duty service men and women. All veterans are urged to attend.  The public is invited and encouraged to attend the tribute to those lost on the U.S.S. Arizona on Pearl Harbor day to honor our veterans. Riverfront Park is located at the intersection of River Road and Commercial Street. Some seating will be available.  For questions or more information, please call Fred Gage at 913-426-1130 or email
