President Obama marks 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor attack

Calvin SaundersDec 09, 2016

But after his lengthy chat with reporters about preparing for Monday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens (among many other things), Belichick talked about something else that is near and dear to his heart: the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.

Before delving into his response, Belichick mentioned that documentary filmmaker and former WJAR sports reporter Tim Gray, who once covered the Patriots, has done a great deal of work on World War II.

His trip to Hawaii on December 26 and 27 comes after Barack Obama in May became the first serving US president to visit Hiroshima, which the United States attacked with an atomic bomb on August 6, 1945.

There aren't many other Pearl Harbor survivors left.

The attack on Pearl Harbor changed their lives forever.

It's a odd thing to say, "I'm not angry" but that's like Ellen saying, 'I don't like dancing.' Yeah, you do, Ellen, you do. If you can stomach Lahren or just need a reason to roll your eyes today , then watch the clip below.

For years, the USS Oklahoma at Pearl Harbor seemed to have been forgotten - until Kevin King of Oklahoma City, after visiting the site, "kicked up some dust" to get a memorial built there. We got them to the hospital, then we came back, and we fought the fire for two days before we got off.

Stuart Hedley is Pearl Harbor veteran.

93-year-old Cartee was a Navy Seaman in Pearl Harbor when Japan attacked in 1941. "I remember not fully grasping what that meant but I knew it was significant".

"When the veteran came here, he was like my age when he went to Pearl Harbor, so it was really emotional, getting to see him, and it was emotional there at the Arizona, where the ship sank", said Grissom junior Dominic Kuzy. Following World War II, her maternal grandfather, Robert W. Jackson, was discharged from the U.S. Army as a first lieutenant.

Warriors who have all the medals and citations they need return here looking for a much different honor - rekindling a bond with their brothers. But for survivors, returning 75 years later, there are other less famous places here that hold great significance and bad memories, reports CBS News correspondent John Blackstone. "They were all destroyed", recounted Limon, who said he was a "very young, very handsome" radioman aboard PBY aircraft.

"Those guys they set the bar for us to continue to try to reach", says Senior Chief Petty Officer Jeff Tabor. "It's all Vietnam, Korea, Desert Storm", Cartee said.

For George Trusler, this day is especially important because it's also his Birthday.

That's still good advice after 75 years. "It's always appreciated when somebody recognizes something you've done for yourself, your family and your country", Trusler said.

"That's what got us into World War II", said Kelly. "That's when I ducked, and it did blow up", Garrish said. We must have everybody highly trained and ready to make a move in a second, know what they're doing and don't get caught with our trousers down.

Most of the men who showed up at the event are 92 or 93-years-old.
