On Sunday afternoon the Pearl Harbor Wounded Veteran in Parks project scheduled a live, interactive broadcast from the submerged USS Arizona to be shown in the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center's theater.

On Saturday, the 78th anniversary of the 1941 sneak attack by Japan on Pearl Harbor, the remains of one of the survivors of the assault will be interred on his sunken ship, the USS Arizona. Elfring survived the attack on Pearl Harbor as a soldier in the California National Guard's 251st Coast Artillery.

They observed a moment of silence at 07:55 a.m., the same time when the attack began on December 7,1941. U.S. Air Force F-22 fighter jets flying overhead in missing man formation broke the quiet.

Trump's proclamation was issued to remember the 2,335 US troops and 68 civilians killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor. Another 1,178 people were injured in the attack that also destroyed 188 aircraft and permanently sank two U.S. Navy battleships, the USS Arizona and USS Utah. Conter was sick previous year and couldn't come.

"It's always good to come back and pay respect to them and give them the top honors that they deserve", Conter said.

Lauren Bruner, who was among the last sailors rescued from the Arizona as it exploded into flames and sank, died in September at age 98.

Officials said security was beefed up during the ceremony marking the Pearl Harbor attack anniversary.
