Default 70th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor Attack

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.
