Pearl Harbor remembered in Sturgeon Bay Wednesday

Sturgeon Bay's first-ever Pearl Harbor Remembrance Ceremony, presented by the U.S. Coast Guard, was held Wednesday morning to honor the 81st anniversary of the historic event. Dozens of community members gathered along the Sturgeon Bay West Waterfront Promenade behind the Door County Maritime Museum for the special commemoration. Sturgeon Bay Fire and Police Department's provided a joint color guard, and a U.S. Coast Guard Honor Guard rang 8-bells and floated a remembrance wreath on the Sturgeon Bay channel remembering the 2,335 lives lost on December 7th, 1941.  The memorial portion of the event included a moment of silence at 11:55 a.m., which is 7:55 a.m. Honolulu time, precisely 81 years to the moment when the attack began. All three U.S. Coast Guard commands in Sturgeon Bay aligned personnel in formation on the pier for the event. 

 

 

 

The ceremony was organized by the "Coast Guard City Sturgeon Bay Committee," a standing committee of the Greater Green Bay Navy League.
