Lawmakers and the Naval Supply Systems Command honored three survivors from the Keystone State: Isaac George, Richard Schimmel, and Pat Bonnelli. "The wreath honors veterans who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation".

At about 8 a.m., Japanese planes filled the sky over Pearl Harbor.

The surprise Japanese attack, which started at 7:55 a.m., damaged or destroyed 20 USA ships and 300 aircraft; it also claimed the lives of more than 2,400 US military personnel and civilians, while injuring nearly 1,200 individuals.

The United States was particularly unhappy with Japan's increasingly belligerent attitude toward China.

To commemorate the moment the Japanese attacked, a ceremonial wreath was laid into Lake Como at 12:55 p.m., which was the exact time in DE the first bomb hit the naval base.

"Hearing the alarm, you report for your battle station immediately, in whatever you are wearing", Ganitch, now living in Alameda, California, recounted to Saluting Military Recruits when he was honored by the San Francisco Bay Area veterans organization in June.
