Actor Gary Sinise to attend 75th Pearl Harbor commemoration

An 11-day event is planned to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.

The theme of the event, which is being organized by the 75th Commemoration of Pearl Harbor Committee, is "Honoring the past, inspiring the future.” It will include concerts, movies and galas to commemorate the remaining survivors of the attack.

A new documentary, "Remember Pearl Harbor," will debut at the Pacific Aviation Museum on Dec. 4. 

Actor Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band are scheduled to perform at Waikiki Beach on Dec. 5 prior to an outdoor showing at the beach of "From Here to Eternity."

The official commemoration will be televised nationally and shown at New York City’s Times Square on Dec. 7.

American Airlines will sponsor a round-trip flight carrying about 120 Pearl Harbor survivors from Los Angeles to Honolulu on Dec. 3.

“Because of American Airlines, the last of the Pearl Harbor survivors and World War II veterans who experienced the emotional awakening on Dec. 7, 1941, have an opportunity to be together at the sacred place where World War II began,” said Adm. Thomas B. Fargo, chair of the committee.
