Spirit of Liberty Foundation honors oldest survivor of Pearl Harbor


Spirit of Liberty Foundation founder Richard Rovsek and Jeri Rovsek held a special event Sept. 11 at their Del Mar home in honor of special guest Ray Chavez, who, at 104 years old, is the oldest survivor of Pearl Harbor.

The Spirit of Liberty Foundation is taking Chavez and his daughter Kathleen to Washington D.C. for the national Veterans Day ceremonies on Nov. 11, and then on to Pearl Harbor for the historic 75th anniversary ceremonies on Dec. 7. Also at both events will be the Spirit of Liberty Foundation’s America’s Freedom Bell, which is three-and-a-half years old and has been rung, touched and seen by over three million patriotic Americans.
