    For the first time, no USS Arizona survivor to attend ceremonies at the Memorial.

    There are only 5 sailors to survive the USS Arizona who are still alive.

    1,177 on the Arizona and 2,403 total, lost their lives.

    They are in my thoughts today.

    I put the flag out this morning....its colors brilliant, against the white snow! After all these years, it still remains an emotional day!

    FILE - In this May 24, 1943 file photo, the capsized battleship USS Oklahoma is lifted out of the water at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii. More than 75 years after nearly 2,400 members of the U.S. military were killed in the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor, some who died on Dec. 7, 1941, are finally being laid to rest in cemeteries across the United States. After DNA allowed the men to be identified and returned home, their remains are being buried in places such as Traer, Iowa and Ontonagon, Michigan. (AP Photo, File) (Photo: AP)
