Part of the exhibit is seen on display at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum on Saturday. Only 10 of the more than 700 crewmembers of the U.S.S. Juneau survived the cruiser's sinking during World War II.

Members of the public look at an exhibit on the U.S.S. Juneau on display during a reception at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum on Saturday. A Naval officer stationed in Juneau, Lt. Cmdr. Miguel Vasquez, gave a presentation on the lost cruiser during the reception, and a Perseverance Theatre actor, Bryan Crowder, read aloud letters written by a U.S.S. Juneau sailor, William George Meeker Jr. The U.S.S. Juneau was lost during World War II, and this year marks the 70th anniversary of its sinking. On Tuesday, Nov. 13, a remembrance ceremony will be held at the U.S.S. Juneau memorial site near the Mount Roberts Tramway off South Franklin Street at 12:15 p.m. A reception at the downtown Visitor’s Center will follow the ceremony.
