Pearl Harbor Day! December 7, 1941

I'm proud to be a Navy Wife today as I am everyday.



Some 100 survivors, the youngest of whom are in their late 80s, have traveled from around the country to attend Tuesday's ceremony.

The event is being held across the harbor from the USS Arizona, which sank in the attack and where the remains of nearly 1,000 sailors and Marines are still entombed.

The survivors will be welcomed by a new $56 million center for visitors and take a boat out to the memorial that sits on top of the battleship.

The new center has twice the exhibition space as the old one, offering a deeper understanding of the attack. (Christian Science Monitor 2010, http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Latest-News-Wires/2010/1207/Pearl-Harbor-Day-sees-fewer-surviving-veterans-from-1941-Hawaii-attack-VIDEO )
