Pearl Harbor is being remembered Tuesday, 69 years after the Japanese attacked on Dec. 7, 1941, plunging the U.S. into World War II.More than 120 survivors, the youngest are now in their late 80s, traveled from across the country for a ceremony in Pearl Harbor.

The Park Service took place near the USS Arizona, which sank in the attack. The remains of nearly 1,000 sailors and marines are entombed there.

In all, more than 2,000 Americans were killed that day.

Survivors are helping dedicate a new $56 million visitor's center.
