The 78th anniversary commemoration of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor will continue in Hawaii as planned, undeterred by a shooting at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard that left three dead on Wednesday.
The Pearl Harbor National Memorial was closed on Wednesday after a 22-year-old sailor identified as “G. Romero” killed two civilian Department of Defense employees and injured a third before shooting himself. Saturday’s events will proceed on schedule, according to Pearl Harbor National Memorial officials.
“The events scheduled for the 78th Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day will continue as planned,” memorial spokeswoman Emily Pruett told the Washington Examiner.
