PASADENA, CA (December 1, 2016) – Parsons announced that it will sponsor the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor’s gala commemorating National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day and the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The event, titled “For Love of Country – Pass it On,” will take place on Saturday, December 3, 2016, inside the museum’s historic World War II Hangar 79. The gala is part of a larger 11-day program and will also honor the museum’s 10th anniversary. A Parsons board member, former board member, and numerous Parsons executives will attend the Honolulu-based event.
“I’d like to thank Parsons for supporting several Pacific Aviation Museum fundraising events over the years,” said Admiral R.J. “Zap” Zlatoper, USN (ret.), a former Parsons board member, Finance Chairman of the 75th Commemoration Committee, and Chairman of the Pacific Aviation Museum Board of Directors. “Pacific Aviation’s mission is to develop and maintain an internationally recognized aviation museum on Ford Island that educates young and old alike, honors aviators and their support personnel who defended freedom in the Pacific Region, and preserves Pacific aviation history.”
This year, the committee put together a series of 52 events, receptions, memorials, keynote speakers, film screenings, concerts, live performances, and other activities to foster reflection, remembrance, and an understanding of the attack on Pearl Harbor as well as to honor the sacrifice and dedication of servicemen and women.
“Parsons currently has more than 1,000 employees who have served or are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces,” said James McGovern, Parsons Lead Independent Director and former Staff Director for the Senate Committee on Armed Services. “Parsons’ participation in the 75th Commemoration reaffirms our support of these brave men and women, some of whom serve our customers in Hawaii.”
