On Wednesday, America will observe the 70th anniversary of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, which shocked the nation, crippled the U.S. fleet and thrust Americans into the middle of the biggest war in history.

Meanwhile, the Kentucky Chapter of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association now lists just 15 attack survivors alive in the state, according to chapter president Jon Toy of Mount Sterling.
