COLORADO SPRINGS — This Saturday marks nearly 80 years since the attacks at Pearl Harbor, launching the United States into World War II.

A remembrance ceremony at Colorado Springs Pioneer Museum Friday brought together past and present generations to honor the sacrifices made by thousands of American service members.

One of the three remaining survivors of the attack on the USS Arizona still lives in the Pikes Peak Region.

Donald Stratton, 97, was recently honored during the unveiling of a new exhibit at the Colorado Springs Airport.
