Thursday marked 76 years since Japan launched a series of surprise attacks on the United States across the Pacific, with the most daring attacks occurring on the U.S. Pacific fleet stationed at Pearl Harbor.

As many ceremonies were held to commemorate the American lives lost on that day, the White House hosted several Pearl Harbor survivors.

President Donald Trump introduced them and talked about what each did on that fateful day in a ceremony.

At one point, Chief Quartermaster Michael “Mickey” Ganitch started to sing “Remember Pearl Harbor.”

“You're not a regular anything; you're a hero ... All of you are heroes,” he told them.
