One night a year, a beacon atop Mount Diablo is lit at sunset and shines all night in memory of Pearl Harbor Day. Survivors of the attack on Pearl Harbor plan to meet Wednesday afternoon on top of Mount Diablo to remember what happened on Dec. 7 in

From the article:

"It was turned off in 1941 after the attacks, but, according to the nonprofit, Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz -- who was the commander in chief of

In any event, this annual remembrance is outstanding and appreciated each and every year.

Thank you.
