Each and every casualties name is on a brick which is fashioned into the "staff" of the anchor. Each brick was purchased by a Grateful Citizen or group.

All names on the Pearl Harbor Memorial are Honorary Members of Navy Club Ship 40-Kenosha.

This memorial was dedicated on September 2, 2000 (VJ Day) and Navy Club Ship 40-Kenosha has held Pearl Harbor Remembrance Ceremonies each year since.

Stanley N. Valentine was the "brains" behind this memorial and Thomas A. Frdericksen did all of the research. This was Stanley's memorial to all his "Shipmates" he left at Pearl Harbor.
