Survivors Honor Shipmates On 75th Anniversary Of Pearl Harbor

Survivors Honor Shipmates On 75th Anniversary Of Pearl HarborFour of the five remaining survivors of the USS Arizona will gather in Hawaii on Wednesday for a ceremony to mark the 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, which sank the Arizona and pulled the U.S. into World War II. There were 335 survivors from the Arizona; 1,177 of its officers and crew members were killed. In all, 2,403 Americans died in the attack, most of them on ships at the Pearl Harbor naval base. The Arizona survivors — Lauren Bruner, 96; Lou Conter, 95; Ken Potts, 95; Donald Stratton, 94; and Lonnie Cook, 96, who did not make the trip this year — will honor two of their shipmates who died this year, and whose remains will be interred on the sunken Arizona.
