No World War Two veterans will be on hand to mark Monday's 79th Pearl Harbor remembrance ceremony of the attack on December 7th, 1941. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says there will be no public attendance either due to COVID-19. However, a few of the remaining survivors will have the opportunity to visit the USS Arizona Memorial for a moment of reflection following the live-streamed morning ceremony. Many of the veterans are close to 100 years old and officials say they made the decision out of an abundance of caution.
