      THE BATTLESHIP MISSOURI MEMORIAL TO HONOR OUR USS MISSOURI SERVICE MEMBERS ON VETERANS DAY

      On Monday, November 11, Veterans Day observances worldwide will culminate with a special sunset ceremony on board the Battleship Missouri Memorial in Pearl Harbor. Join us at this ceremony honoring the service members who gave the ultimate sacrifice by serving on the decks of the USS Missouri.

      Since its inception, the USS Missouri and those who served aboard represent decades of fortitude and heroism. On January 6, 1941, the USS Missouri's keel was first laid at the New York Navy Shipyard. Soon after, on January 29, 1994, the ship was then launched and later commissioned.

      Throughout the USS Missouri's extensive 50 years of service, the famed battleship spanned three wars and three great generations of American servicemen and woman. Notable historical events that took place aboard the ship include Japan's formal surrender in World War II, the shore bombardment missions of the Korean War, and the first missile fire of Operation Desert Storm. Underway with successful war Task Groups and numerous training exercises, the ship and its crew amassed a reputation of valor and sacrifice. After the USS Missouri was towed into Pearl Harbor, the famed battleship and the thousands of honorable USS Missouri veterans, remain as celebrated entities in American history.

      Attendance to the ceremony is free and open to the public. Complimentary round-trip shuttle service for the ceremony will be offered from the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center beginning at 3:30 p.m.
