Pearl Harbor survivors remember those killed 76 years ago

Pearl Harbor survivors remember those killed 76 years ago

American officials responded to this aggression with a battery of economic sanctions and trade embargoes.

During this aerial tour of the historic site, the survivors - Lauren Bruner, Howard "Ken" Potts, and Donald Stratton - were given the opportunity to once again honor the 1,177 shipmates they lost during the attack.

Sadly, there are fewer Pearl Harbor survivors than in the past, and the number of survivors will continue to dwindle every year.

Ganitch later broke out into song, delivering a rendition of "Remember Pearl Harbor". "Let's remember Pearl Harbor, as we did the Alamo", Ganitch sang.

At about 8 a.m., Japanese planes filled the sky over Pearl Harbor.

"I can not help but note that just as the crew of the USS Ward was not caught unprepared by peacetime mentality, likewise the Pacific Fleet was not trapped by fear and uncertainty following the attack that morning", he said.

In all, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor crippled or destroyed almost 20 American ships and more than 300 airplanes.

The battleship U.S.S. Arizona became the most notable sinking that day, going up in a quick blast when a Japanese bomb breached its steel deck and exploded the ship's powder magazine.

It was attended by Ben Florsheim, an aide to U.S. Sen.

It was called the, "Day that will live in infamy".

"That we are not forgotten and that some people do appreciate us and what we have done", said Baker. When they finally made it, they were some of the first to arrive. To this day the U.S.S. Arizona still remains sunken, along with the remains of some of its crew members. "We must never allow that torch to flicker out". "I don't have any joys about the war, but I'm very lucky, very lucky".

Five or six years ago it would have been easy, without shedding a drop of blood, for the United States and Great Britain to have insisted on the fulfillment of the disarmament clauses of the treaties which Germany signed after the Great War.

For the second time, Congress reciprocated, declaring war on the European powers. Two days later, Germany declared war on the United States, bring American into a two-front world war that lasted more than three years.
