CORPUS CHRISTI - The 71st anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was remembered today aboard the U.S.S. Lexington in Corpus Christi earlier today.
Survivors of that fateful day got together along with staff and volunteers to remember those lost.
In addition to the many stories from survivors, historical films of the era were shown to those in attendance.
Several musical numbers were performed by the Corpus Christi Fire Department and the Veterans Band.
The presentation of colors was held by the Flour Bluff High School Junior R.O.T.C.
The U.S.S. Lexington is an Essex-class aircraft carrier commissioned during World War II and played a major role in the Pacific theater before becoming a floating museum.
