Hawaii remembrance to draw handful of Pearl Harbor survivors

A handful of centenarian survivors of the attack on Pearl Harbor are expected to gather at the scene  of the Japanese bombing

to commemorate those who perished 81 years ago.

About 2,400 servicemen were killed in the bombing

which launched the U.S. into World War II.

The ceremony sponsored by the Navy and the National Park Service will feature a moment of silence at 7:55 a.m., the minute the attack began, and a missing-man-formation flyover.

Navy and park service officials are due to deliver remarks.
