Near Annapolis in Anne Arundel County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Pearl Harbor Survivors Association
To those members of the Armed Forces of the United States who served at Pearl Harbor and other military installations on the island of Oahu during the Japanese attack on Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, to perpetuate the memory of those who died that day and those who answer a "last muster call" since that "date of infamy." This event precipitated the United States' entry into World War II.
May they rest in eternal peace.
[Engraved near the base are the Seals of the United States Army, United States Navy, United States Army Air Corps, United States Marine Corps, and United States Coast Guard]
