I am sorry to hear that. It reminds me of some commemorations in Europe.

Yes, very sad.  I saw an interview with 4 of the 5 living survivors of the Arizona who made it back to Pearl Harbor for the 75th anniversary ceremonies. They are in their 90s now, among the last of the Greatest Generation. :'-(

I also saw Adm. Harry Harris's speech.

I can only share this link with you:

In German:

(The Figaro shows two photos and a graph of the disaster, the Corriere della sera a whole series of pictures.)

Thank you, Marianne.

It's so sad, the psychological burdens that so many combat veterans have to bear for their entire lives, something others can only try to imagine.  

Marianne TheOtherTink

You're welcome, T(h)ink, yes, it is very sad.
