Branson Veterans Task Force to Host Pearl Harbor Day Ceremony

The Branson Veterans Task Force will be holding a ceremony to commemorate “The Day That Will Live in Infamy” and to honor those who were lost at Pearl Harbor. The event will take place in front of the water and fire show area on the Branson Landing on Monday, December 7, 2009 from 12:00 to 12:30 and will end with a wreath laying in Lake Taneycomo. This is a free event, and the public is welcome to attend.

In the attacks on the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor in 1941 that brought about America’s entry into World War II, 3,500 people were killed, hundreds of aircraft were destroyed, and every battleship in the U.S. Pacific Fleet was either sunk or severely damaged. The following day, President Roosevelt made a speech before Congress and the American people stating that “December 7, 1941 was a day that will live in infamy.” Shortly thereafter, the United States was engaged in a two-front war in the Pacific and European theaters.

The Branson Veterans Task Force is dedicated to honoring our Nation’s brave service personnel and veterans throughout the year. The BVTF does that, in part, by hosting events like Veterans Homecoming held during Veterans Week in November, Independence Day celebration, patriotic parades, Memorial Day ceremonies and more. The Task Force is dedicated to recognizing veterans, fostering patriotism, and educating the community. For more information about the Branson Veterans Task force visit or call 417-337-8387.
