USS Arizona Memorial Names

The USS Arizona Memorial, located at Pearl Harbor in HonoluluHawaiʻi, marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors killed on the USS Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 by Japanese imperial forces and commemorates the events of that day.

Historical information about the attack, shuttle boats to and from the memorial, and general visitor services are available at the associated USS Arizona Memorial Visitor Center, which opened in 1980 and is operated by the National Park Service. The sunken remains of the battleship were declared a National Historic Landmark on 5 May 1989.

      Remarks by the First Lady

      Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling
      Washington, D.C.

      1:11 P.M. EST

      MRS. OBAMA: Oh, my goodness! (Applause.) How is everybody doing? (Applause.) Wait, wait, wait — how are you all doing? (Applause.) Really? (Applause.) Are we excited? Are we ready to have some fun?

      CHILDREN: Yeah!

      MRS. OBAMA: Oh, see, I like this group over here. They seem really excited. Can I get a little more excitement down there? Are we ready to sort some toys? (Applause.) Yes, this is what I want to hear!

      It is beyond a pleasure for me to be here today, but before we get started I want to thank a few people, okay? Is that okay with you if I take a little time and thank some folks?

      I want to start by thanking Lieutenant General Pete Osman, who you just heard for — not just for that kind introduction, but this man has been a leader. He’s been someone I consider a friend. It has been a privilege to work with him for the past eight years, not just on Toys for Tots, but on so many different issues. He is a role model to me, and I treasure his friendship. And I hope there’s more work that we can do together in the years to come. So let’s thank General Osman. (Applause.)

      And I also want to thank Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps, Ronny Green; your base Commander, Captain Frank Mays; and all my good folks from the White House Communications Agency. Let’s hear it for my WHCA folks and your families. (Applause.) We are so grateful for your outstanding service.

      And I also want to thank Lieutenant Colonel Shane Donahue; Master Sergeant David Pizana, who has actually done all the leadership work on this drive. He has done amazing work, and I know he doesn’t do it alone. He has a great team, so I am grateful to all of you for helping to run the Toys for Tots drive here in the D.C. area.

      And especially on what is the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, when we acknowledge the sacrifice of so many, I want to say a very special thank you to our servicemembers who are here today.

  6. Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010 – Sixth Anniversary

    The Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010 is a law, signed into effect by President Obama, that expands the punitive abilities of tribal courts across the nation. The law allows tribal courts operating in Indian country to increase jail sentences handed down in criminal cases. This was a major step toward improving enforcement and justice in Indian country.

    Before this law, tribal courts were limited in the scope of punishment they could hand down in criminal cases, giving them the impression of a lower, less serious court. They now possess the power under the Tribal Law and Order Act to pass increased sentences in order to incarcerate defendants longer.

  8. Weekly jobless claims drop and have been below 300K for 92 weeks

    December 8, 2016 Paul Wiseman, The Associated Press

    WASHINGTON – Fewer Americans signed up for unemployment benefits last week, another sign of a healthy U.S. job market.

    The Labor Department says weekly claims for jobless aid slid by 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 258,000. The less-volatile four-week average rose by 1,000 to 252,500.

    Claims have come in below 300,000 for 92 straight weeks, longest such streak since 1970 when the population and labor force were much smaller.

    Applications for unemployment benefits are a proxy for layoffs. The low level suggests that employers are holding onto their staffs and that most American workers enjoy job security.

    The Labor Department reported last week that the economy generated a solid 178,000 jobs in November and that unemployment dropped to a nine-year low 4.6%.

  9. Black woman who fought segregation to be face of Canada’s $10 bill

    Bank of Canada officials revealed their pick Thursday for the first Canadian woman to be portrayed prominently on the nation’s currency: Viola Desmond, who helped inspire the country’s civil rights movement.

    By Steven Porter, Staff DECEMBER 8, 2016

    Nine years before Rosa Parks made civil rights history in the United States by refusing to give up her seat on a segregated bus for a white passenger, a black Canadian businesswoman named Viola Desmond took an anti-segregation stand of her own inside a Nova Scotia movie theater.

    Ms. Desmond was arrested and fined in 1946 for sitting in the whites-only section on the theater’s main floor instead of the section for black Canadians in the balcony. For fighting those charges – which included an allegation of tax evasion for the one-cent difference in price between the two seating sections – Desmond helped inspire the country’s civil rights movement, and now will be honored by the Bank of Canada, as government officials announced Thursday.
