JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A new pavilion at Craig Airport was dedicated to a fallen Jacksonville veteran Friday.

Lt. Cmdr. James Edwin Craig  (1901-1941), a Jacksonville native, was killed in action aboard the USS Pennsylvania during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.

The Jacksonville Aviation Authority announced the completion of the James Edwin Craig Memorial Pavilion in front of family members, community dignitaries and local military and airport personnel.

"Craig is an important part of the airport's history and we are committed to honoring his legacy through this memorial project," said JAXEX Airport Manager Tiffany Gillem. 

The JAA also presented a $2,000 donation to The Greater Jacksonville Area USO during the ceremony.
