With the USS Arizona Memorial in the background, band members from high schools across the country line up on the pier next to the Battleship Missouri to participate in a mass band concert as part of the 70th commemoration ceremonies held at Pearl Harbor Dec. 7. Early morning commemoration services at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center included a moment of silence at 7:55 a.m. (the exact time the first wave of Japanese planes began their attacks), followed by a flyover of military jets in the missing man formation. Only about 120 survivors were able to attend. The 2,700-member Pearl Harbor Survivors Association announced that day it was disbanding Dec. 31, due to the age and physical condition of those remaining.
