The National Museum of the United States Navy, in partnership with DC Public Schools and the cultural immersion non-profit Globalize DC, presents a wreath laying ceremony and display by several local high school students. The students’ wreaths commemorate the lives lost during the infamous attack at Pearl Harbor. Sally Schwartz, founder of Globalize DC, will make remarks and introduce each student and their participating school. The wreaths will remain on view at the museum through December 9, 2023.
