About 20 survivors of the original attack on Pearl Harbor will gather at the site near the attack on the U.S.S. Arizona to remember fellow servicemen killed in the early morning raid 76 years ago. A couple thousand members of the public, Navy and National Park Service officials will join them.

A moment of silence will mark the time the attack began. As part of the ceremony, author Steve Twomey will deliver the keynote address. He wrote "Countdown to Pearl Harbor," which examines the 12 days leading up to the Dec. 7, 1941, attack.

More than 2,300 servicemen were killed in the assault carried out by Japanese airplanes. Nearly half were on the USS Arizona battleship, which exploded and sank after being bombed.
