HRNM to Host Navy Heritage Lecture: "Norfolk, VA and Pearl Harbor Remembered"

The Hampton Roads Naval Museum is proud to offer lecture and programs centered around the history and heritage of the United States Navy in Hampton Roads, VA, America's "First Region."

December's Navy Heritage presentation will center around the 1941 Japanese raid on the U.S. Navy's Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor and its importance to American history. HRNM Educator Stephen Hebert will discuss the socio-economic impact that the "day that will live in infamy" had on the homeport of the U.S. Atlantic Fleet.

The 45-minute presentation will begin at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, 7 December in the Jamestown Exposition room inside the Hampton Roads Naval Museum. Admission for the museum is free.
