Three of the five living survivors of the USS Arizona were feted from the Pentagon to the Oval Office Friday.
The men survived the sinking of the Pennsylvania-class battleship after it was bombed by the Japanese during the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.
President Donald Trump lauded Lauren Bruner, a fire controlman, Donald Stratton, a seaman first class, and Ken Potts, a coxswain, during a Friday afternoon ceremony at the White House.
Trump said it was their first visit to D.C.
“I hope this trip does honor to you and your truly heroic service,” Trump said. “We want to thank you, thank you all. That is so good. Thank you very much.”
