Honoring Our Veterans

Ray Chavez, a 104-year-old Navy veteran and the oldest surviving Pearl Harbor veteran, poses for a photo after being greeted by several military members and personnel at the Honolulu International Airport. More than 100 World War II veterans, including Pearl Harbor survivors, arrived in Honolulu to participate in the remembrance events throughout the week to honor the courage and sacrifices of those who served on Dec. 7, 1941, and throughout the course of the war in the Pacific Theater. Dec. 7, 2016, marks the 75th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor and Oahu. As a Pacific nation, the U.S. is committed to its responsibility of protecting the Pacific sea-lanes, advancing international ideals and developing relationships, as well as delivering security, influence, and responsiveness in the region. –U.S. Coast Guard photo by Petty Officer 2nd Class Tara Mollev
