Commander at Pearl Harbor: Stand for National Anthem

The Associated Press reports that “U.S. Pacific Command Commander Adm. Harry Harris says those who served during the attack on Pearl Harbor never failed to stand for the national anthem.”

“His remarks Wednesday at a ceremony marking the 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack generated a lengthy standing ovation from the crowd, with people whistling and hooting.”

“Thousands gathered for the event, held on a pier across the harbor from where the USS Arizona sank during the 1941 attack.”
