Veterans who survived the bombing of Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, will share their experiences.
"That's one of the most enjoyable parts of the program," said Don Monsoon, honorary member of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association.
The program will have a military chaplain and an educational part for the public. The beacon, which was installed in 1928 to guide airplanes, will be lit at sunset, around 4:45 p.m., at the top of the summit and will shine all night. Since 1964, the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association has memorialized Pearl Harbor Day by lighting the beacon.
There are approximately 2,300 Pearl Harbor survivors.
"Every year, they are decreasing," Monsoon said, about the Pearl Harbor veterans. "The youngest are in their early to mid-80s."
