PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii --- A dozen frail survivors of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor returned on Saturday to honor those who perished when Japanese planes pierced a quiet sunny morning and rained bombs on battleships below.
Some 2,000 members of the public joined the survivors, the youngest of whom are now in their late 90s, to commemorate the anniversary of the attack that launched the U.S. into World War II.
Lou Conter was the only survivor from the USS Arizona to make it to this year's ceremony.
The 98-year-old said it's good to come back and pay respect to those who died.
