Pearl Harbor Day – 76th Anniversary – Today is Pearl Harbor Day, and Coronado, being a Navy town, has its share of history connected to that fateful day 75 years ago. On the memorial wall of the USS ARIZONA the name Capt Van Valkenburgh, the commanding officer of the USS Arizona, is etched into the marble. Capt Van Valkenburgh’s widow and children were living on Coronado at the time and lived in a house on Star Park for many years after.
