GWP Sullivan Attends Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary Ceremony

FREDERICKSBURG, VA, December 12, 2016 – Fraternal Order of Eagles (F.O.E.) Grand Worthy President Jerry L. Sullivan traveled to Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, as an invited guest for the 75th Anniversary Commemoration Ceremony of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Sullivan and his wife, Maxine, toured the Visitors Center and memorial during the visit to pay tribute to those who bravely fought on Dec. 7, 1941.

In 2008, the Eagles donated more than $50,000 toward the construction of the new Pearl Harbor Visitors Center, which includes museums dedicated to the attack on Pearl Harbor and World War II.

“It is an incredible honor to represent the Fraternal Order of Eagles and Fredericksburg at such an amazing event,” Sullivan said. “Several years ago, we had the opportunity to make a contribution to the wonderful new center developed to honor those who gave and risked their lives in the attack and to experience this event first hand was an opportunity I’ll never forget.”

Sullivan, a charter member of Fredericksburg Eagles #4123, joined the organization in 1985 and since July, has been serving in the Order’s highest chair.

The F.O.E. has been a longtime supporter of the United States military, beginning with the advent of the F.O.E. Memorial Foundation during World War II. The Foundation was created to provide medical benefits to the children of members who lost their lives in the war.

Today, it continues on, providing medical, education, dental and vision benefits to the children of members who lose their lives while performing their jobs.

The F.O.E. also offers a free year of membership to all current and former servicemen and women through its Those Who Serve Program and provides care packages to serving troops each holiday season through its Operation Eagle campaign.

“The Fraternal Order of Eagles recognizes the sacrifices that our military makes in order to protect our freedoms,” Sullivan said. “We are humbled and blessed by the opportunities given to us as Eagles to help provide assistance to these wonderful men and women in any way we can."
