Friday’s  remembrance ceremony took place on the deck of the “USCGC Taney,” which is docked at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, at Pier 5. The “Taney” is an historic vessel. It saw action at Pearl Harbor and it is the last commissioned U.S. ship still afloat from that fateful day. The then-U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt told the Nation, that December 7, 1941 was “a day that will live in infamy.”
