PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii — More than 2,000 people are gathering at Pearl Harbor on Friday to mark the 71st anniversary of the Japanese attack that killed thousands of people and launched the United States into World War II.

Ceremonies get under way with a moment of silence at 7:55 a.m., the exact time the bombing began in 1941.

The crew of a Navy guided-missile destroyer will stand on deck while the ship passes the USS Arizona, a battleship that still lies in the harbor where it sank decades ago.

    My dad would have been 85 (Actually had to recalculate he would have been 87) if he were alive today. He was a Marine wounded at Peleliu. He was a member of the greatest generation. This is one of those milestone days when I remember him.

    Miss you Dad… See you soon enough.

    Here is a great site on Peleliu..
