Veterans Day Sunset Ceremony

Celebrate the 160th Anniversary of the Medal of Honor aboard the Battleship Missouri Memorial with a special tribute to the legacy of Senator Daniel K. Inouye

On Friday, November 11, Veterans Day observances worldwide will culminate with a special sunset ceremony onboard the Battleship Missouri Memorial in Pearl Harbor. Join us as we honor the 160th anniversary of the Medal of Honor, and legacy of an American hero and statesman, Senator Daniel K. Inouye.

This year marks the 160th anniversary of the Medal of Honor, the United States Armed Forces’ highest and most prestigious award for military valor in action. From the American Civil War to today, over 3,500 Medal of Honor recipients have been awarded to service members who displayed bravery, courage, sacrifice and integrity in the moments that mattered most.

One of the most distinguished Medal of Honor recipients is Senator Daniel K. Inouye. Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, Inouye served in the U.S. Army’s 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II, one of the most decorated military units in U.S. history. For his combat heroism, Inouye was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, the Distinguished Service Cross, the Bronze Star, and the Purple Heart with Cluster. He later went on to get his law degree and became one of the first representatives in the U.S. Congress when Hawaii became the 50th state. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Senator Daniel K. Inouye’s passing as we remember and honor his service, sacrifice and commitment to the nation and Hawai`i’s communities.
