We remember and honor the U.S. service members who died at Pearl Harbor every single day. Out of the entire surviving crew of the USS Arizona, only five are still alive today. A photographer followed four of them to the 75th anniversary commemoration of Pearl Harbor, and documented everything. This is the resulting video.

To them, the events on that day are a reality. They aren’t a story read from a book, nor are they a movie they watched on the big screen. Everything about that day is part of their reality.
