Jay Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3335 plans to hold its 2022 Pearl Harbor Day Ceremony at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7, at the Livermore Falls bridge, starting in the bank building parking lot, and marching out onto the bridge.

The ceremony will include Color Guard units from Post 3335, and Firing Squad from AMVETS Post 33, as well as the traditional prayers and wreath laying into the river, according to a news release from Jim Manter, Jay VFW Post 3335 Judge Advocate.

Post Cmdr. Ricky Merrill says, “This year marks the return of our local traditional Pearl Harbor bridge ceremony. The past three years were canceled because of COVID restrictions.” Merrill added, “We are proud to provide the honors, and invite the local veterans and citizens to attend the ceremony, to honor those Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines lost on Dec. 7, 1941, at the Pearl Harbor attack.”
