Pearl Harbor survivors to remember those killed

Pearl Harbor survivors to remember those killed

Six World War II veterans shared their stories about serving with a group of students from Vanguard College Preparatory school on Pearl Harbor Day.

Each year the number of survivors from that surprise attack on Pearl Harbor grows smaller, but their courage and determination to fight must never be forgotten. Trump called it "A day that will live in infamy!" but Roosevelt actually used the words "date which" (and no exclamation point, which is far more of a Trumpian flourish than a Rooseveltian one). "On this day, we honor their memory and give thanks for their service and sacrifice".

On the quiet morning of December 7, 1941, Japan launched an attack on the USA naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Much previous years, the ceremony will begin at the chapel on base and conclude with wreath-laying at the Pearl Harbor memorial.


Kasich's resolution noted that more than 3,500 Americans were killed or wounded as a result of the attack.

The first lady, Melania Trump, also made a small mistake in a tweet commemorating the anniversary.
