“I come back to be with my comrades - meet the ones who are still alive, and we’re going fast,” said Delton Walling, who was assigned to the USS Pennsylvania at the time of the 1941 attack.
The Navy and National Park Service co-hosted the ceremony, which was open to the public.
The crowd of veterans, friends, family and locals observed a moment of silence at 7:55 a.m., the minute the bombing began 72 years ago.
Survivors of the attack were able to observe a “Remembrance Wall,” with the names of those who died in Pearl Harbor.
