"The attack on Pearl Harbor is known as the catalyst of the navy entering World War II", added Wright.

American officials responded to this aggression with a battery of economic sanctions and trade embargoes.

"We are grateful for the 109 people whose names are on the plaque behind me", 9/11 Memorial Committee Chairman Charlie Spano said.

A quiet reverence cloaked the USS Milwaukee on Thursday morning as Pearl Harbor survivor Robert Beaudreau braved a stiff breeze and steady drizzle to walk up the gangplank and board the ship.

December 7, 2017) Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story hosted a Pearl Harbor remembrance ceremony December 7.

The branch has hosted the tradition in some form since 1966 and used to take ships out to sea to perform wreath-laying ceremonies.

"The unbelievable sacrifices that the men and women from Pearl Harbor". Just remember Pearl Harbor, and go on to victory!'

"It's a real pleasure to come out here and join them", said retired Army Col. Frederick Clinton, who fought across the French and German fronts in 1944-1945.

J.C. Alston who now lives in Troy said he was aboard the USS California when the attack started.

In all, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor crippled or destroyed almost 20 American ships and more than 300 airplanes.

Not numerous veterans were able to walk unassisted around the monument's perimeter as they placed wreaths at the foot of the inscription that reads "Here we mark the price of freedom". This was accomplished through the combined, bipartisan effort of our elected state representatives, USA representatives, senators and other leaders. Twice in a single generation the catastrophe of world war has fallen upon us. To this day the U.S.S. Arizona still remains sunken, along with the remains of some of its crew members. "Indeed, America's sailors, civilian sailors and members of all military branches made sure that the adversary intended as the first and last battle of a short war was only the opening act". "We must never allow that torch to flicker out". Rankin was a pacifist who had also voted against the American entrance into World War I.

"Be proud of the United States".

Three days later on December 11, Germany declared war on the United States.
