It is a milestone moment that sadly not many survivors are still alive to see. Today we remember the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor 75 years later.
FOX's Gurnal Scott has the story:
President Franklin Roosevelt's words still ring true:
(President Roosevelt) "December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy."
Of 60,000 service members stationed on Hawaii that day, some 2400 were killed since then survivors have returned annually to the USS Arizona Memorial.
Today those survivors still with us are well into their 90's. Some even past 100-years-old. It's not certain how many still live and if they are able to be there, but many visitors are expected to remember their sacrifice.
And while not today, a significant visit comes later this month as President Obama tours Pearl Harbor with Japan's Shinzo Abe, a first ever visit for a Japanese prime minister.
