Pearl Harbor attack remembered at 70th anniversary

70 years ago.
I ran into a WWII vet yesterday at my local gas station ( he had one of those Michigan License plates that said so ), a very nice old guy.
The shock on his face when I walked past him to pay for my gas and I thanked him for serving our country.
He said people never thank him...

Now I must go to work, (for a Japanese Company).
Hawaii—The Dec. 7, 1941, bombing of Pearl Harbor and those who lost their lives that day are being remembered Wednesday on the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack that brought the U.S. into World War II.

About 120 survivors will join Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, military leaders and civilians to observe a moment of silence in Pearl Harbor at 7:55 a.m. Hawaii time -- the moment the attack began seven decades ago.

About 3,000 people are expected to attend the event held each year at a site overlooking the sunken USS Arizona and the white memorial that straddles the battleship.
