Reed Welcomes USS Arizona Relic to TF Green & Honor Those Lost in Pearl Harbor & WWII

12/17/2018 — 

Senator Reed welcomed a piece of U.S. and international history to T.F. Green Airport: a metal portion of the U.S.S. Arizona, which was sunk 77 years ago in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, inspiring the United States to join World War II.  The relic will be accepted by the Rhode Island-based World War II Foundation and will be displayed at the entrance of the Foundation’s Global Education Center on Main Street in Wakefield. Award-winning documentary filmmaker and World War II Foundation head Tim Gray served as the MC of the event, which will also be attended by WWII Veterans, URI students, State Police, Fedex representatives, airport representatives, and National Guard members.
