William Floyd NJROTC Commemorates 77th Attack on Pearl Harbor

Mastic Beach, NY, December 7, 2018 – Today, William Floyd High School NRJOTC cadets, under the leadership of Commander Jay Tweed (USN/Ret.) and Senior Chief Dwight Becherer (USN/Ret.), commemorated the 77th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, with a moment of silence held precisely at 12:55 pm – the time in New York when the attack began – followed by a 21-bell salute. This ceremony was held to honor the 2,403 Americans who lost their lives, as well as the 1,178 who were wounded, on what then President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called “A date which will live in infamy.” You can watch the video at this link.
