President Trump signs a proclamation Thursday making December 7th, National Pearl Harbor Day.
Trump shook the veterans hands and when mentioning the song “Remembering Pearl Harbor,” one of the veterans broke out in song.
Many took to Twitter in remembrance of Pearl Harbor.
As we look back at one of the most significant days in our nation’s history, we remember more than 2,400 Americans killed and nearly 1,200 wounded during the horrific attack on #PearlHarbor in 1941. #WWII #GreatestGeneration #WeRemember pic.twitter.com/5ThmmyFrpY

On the eve of Dec. 7th I'd like you to meet Pearl Harbor survivor Chuck Kohler, 93, of Concord. Kohler enlisted into the U.S. Navy at the age of 17 and is one of a handful of Pearl Harbor survivors left in Contra Costa County. #PearlHarborRemembranceDay #pearlharbor #WorldWarII pic.twitter.com/BLxT5CuhvG

The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor 76 years ago, forcing us into WWII. My dad dropped his football scholarship & enlisted in the Marines. Somehow, he made it 4 years fighting in Japan. That certainly confirms my life has purpose. Grateful for the #GreatestGeneration. #PearlHarbor pic.twitter.com/5JDs9EknYk
