PEARL HARBOR — Engineman 1st Class Gregory Muniak, of Cape May, tolled 21 bells during a World War I commemoration ceremony celebrating Armistice and Veterans Day at the Pacific Fleet Boathouse on Sunday, Nov. 11.

Armistice Day is commemorated every year in honor of the temporary cease fire between the Allied nations and Germany which went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month on Nov. 11, 1918 seven months prior to the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.

The world's largest fleet command, the U.S. Pacific Fleet, encompasses 100 million square miles, nearly half the Earth's surface, from Antarctica to the Arctic circle and from the West Coast of the United States into the Indian Ocean. The U.S. Pacific Fleet consists of about 200 vessels, nearly 1,200 aircraft and more than 130,000 sailors and civilians.
