NH veterans remember attack on Pearl Harbor
"We didn't know what was happening, we were just teenagers," Gorski, 94, said.
"It was 2 p.m. in the afternoon, I remember it well," he said.
"We knew something was coming, we had just been training in Cuba. But we had never been in battle, we thought 'We'll kill these (Japanese) in a couple of weeks and then we'll be home.'"
Fred Osgood, 89, of Concord, another Marine who served in the Pacific Theater during World War II, said he didn't expect the attack.
Osgood paid tribute to U.S. forces fighting today.
"It's too bad we have to keep getting into these things, trouble seems to bring us places these days too," he said.
"The horrific attack at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, forever changed the course of history for our great nation and the world," Hassan said. "On this solemn occasion, we honor the sacrifices of those heroes who lost their lives and those who survived that tragic day. We are eternally grateful for their service and the service of millions more who would go on to fight for our country in the Second World War, defending our shared values of liberty, equality and freedom."
