    Blackened Canteen Ceremony at the USS Arizona Memorial

    161206-N-AV234-517 PEARL HARBOR (Dec. 6, 2016) Bishop Ryokan Ara of the Tendai Mission in Honolulu, Hawaii, delivers a blessing during the 6th annual Blackened Canteen ceremony at the USS Arizona Memorial during the 75th Commemoration of the attacks on Pearl Harbor. The blackened canteen is a relic of an air raid over Shizuoka, Japan, in 1945, and is used for pouring bourbon whiskey as an offering to the fallen in the hallowed waters of Pearl Harbor. Dec. 7, 2016, marks the 75th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor and Oahu. Since Dec. 7, 1941, the U.S. and Japan have endured more than 70 years of continued peace, a cornerstone of security and prosperity in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. As a Pacific nation, the U.S. is committed to continue its responsibility of protecting the Pacific sea-lanes, advancing international ideals and relationships, well as delivering security, influence and responsiveness in the region.
