2021 marks the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The events of December 7, 1941, plunged the United States into World War II and left an indelible mark on the nation.
More than 750,000 Texans served in WWII. One of these was Doris “Dorie” Miller, a sailor whose heroic actions at Pearl Harbor earned him the Navy Cross. In this presentation, we’ll discuss Miller’s story and the broader impact of Pearl Harbor Day on our state and country.
- Doreen Ravenscroft, president, Cultural Arts of Waco, the organization that spearheaded the creation of the Doris Miller Memorial
- General Michael Hagee, USMC (Ret.), president & CEO, The Admiral Nimitz Foundation and the National Museum of the Pacific War
- Host: Stephen Cure, Military Sites Coordinator, Texas Historical Commission
The virtual remembrance ceremony mentioned by Gen. Hagee is online.
