Harbor Blvd, San Pedro CA 90731. Both Ceremonies generally start at 9:45 am local time. For additional information concerning, access, parking, seating, lodging, or other planned activities at either location please contact: For the Battleship: David Canfield (PBC Vice President and former crew member) at his email or the Veterans Association of USS Iowa for assistance.
