Today, December 7, is the 70th anniversary of the attack at Pearl Harbor.

FDR's address in front of Congress the next day, Dec. 8, 1941:

My sister's mother-in-law's brother was on the USS Utah which was torpedoed. He survived and was at the 70th anniversary ceremony held at Pearl Harbor. I haven't seen any news footage of it, but he was supposed to be the one to raise the flag for the ceremony.
