Every year, the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth commemorates the victims of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on Dec. 7, 1941. This year was no different.

“It is important to commemorate the victims of Pearl Harbor because their bravery and courage has not been forgotten and they remain an inspiration to our current and future generations of sailors,” Religious Program Specialist 2nd Class Stephen Rossell said. “Annually, NAS JRB Fort Worth takes pause and recognizes our fallen American heroes from the attacks on Pearl Harbor and also pays tribute to those who later lost their lives in WWII.”

World War II veterans Staff Sgt. Bill McIntire, Yeoman 3rd Class Allen Chatwin, Petty Officer 3rd Class Derrick South, Petty Officer Jack Stowe were in attendance at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth on Dec. 7.
