p&c article pearl harbor ceremony

University School students heard first-hand from WWII Veterans about the attack on Pearl Harbor at the 82nd Annual Pearl Harbor Memorial Ceremony at Patriot’s Point.

December 7th marks the anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese Navy Air Service, the start of WWII and a pivotal moment in US history.

USL attends this ceremony annually and returned in 2022 after a 2-year hiatus.

Students arrived early, greeted Veterans, and listened to personal stories from them and active duty service members and then observed and took part in the ceremony. They were well received, acknowledged for attending and participated in the wreath throwing memorializing the fallen by tossing a wreath into Charleston Harbor.

Attending events like this brings our nation’s history off the book page and breathes life into it. It serves as a model of some of the values USL stands for: civility, civic education, and honoring our military service men and women.

WCIV television coverage of the event.
