PRESIDENT FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT: A date which will live in infamy.
ROOSEVELT: The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
AZUZ: That made Saturday the 78th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor and one of the American sailors who survived the bombings and explosion of the USS Arizona was laid to rest there on this Pearl Harbor Day. Lauren Bruner died on September 10th of this year. He was almost 99 years old and his loved ones gathered Saturday at the USS Arizona Memorial to remember him and pass his remains to U.S. Navy divers who placed them near one of the Arizona's gun turrets. Bruner was the second to last man to escape from the sinking ship and a memorial spokeswoman says he'll be the last survivor to have this done.
As only three people who were aboard the Arizona in 1941 are still alive and the others plan to be laid to rest with their families. When it was carried out, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was the deadliest attack on American soil. And in the days that followed the United States joined China, Great Britain and the Soviet Union in their fight against Germany, Italy and Japan, the struggle of the second World War.
