The 75th annual Pearl Harbor Remembrance Dinner will be held at the Naval Postgraduate School, Herrmann Hall on the grounds of the Naval Support Activity Monterey, on Friday 2 December. Festivities will commence at 1800 hours in the La Novia Room, a historical dining room at the Old Del Monte Hotel, now the site of the Naval Postgraduate School, with a reception. The reception area will have significant 1941 Pearl Harbor December 7th displays provided by the school’s Dudley Knox Library. The Navy Center for Information Dominance Monterey Choir, from the Monterey Defense Language Institute, will provide guests with a pre-dinner medley of seasonal holiday and patriotic songs during the reception and during the dinner in the El Prado Dining Room.
Following the reception, the guests will be “piped” to the formal dining room by the “official Commandery piper” as guests proceed into the dining room decorated with Christmas trees and packages yet to be opened. The Monterey County Division-Naval Sea Cadet Corps is the designated Honor and Color Guard for the evening. Of the many anticipated guests, several Pearl Harbor survivors have been invited. Attendees will include NPS students, faculty, retired military, elected officials, and civilian friends from the Central Coast region and Silicon Valley. International students will join UCSC STARS returning veterans along with civilian fellows from the Hoover Stanford University Spogli Freeman Institute.
The 2016 Theme is Pearl Harbor 1941 - Reflections Building for the Future. The Guest speaker is the Honorable Mayor of the City of Monterey, Mr. Clyde Roberson, whose father was at Pearl Harbor December the 7th, 1941
