There are currently five surviving USS Arizona members. This last Pearl Harbor remembrance ceremony none of them were able to make it, although other survivors were there. Also the then oldest Pearl Harbor survivor had passed away November 21st at 106.

"so I ended up getting the above because I didn't want to make a whole production of sticking something between my knees and cranking. To me, the cranking on mine is pretty effortless, at least on the coarse setting. Maybe if someone has arthritis or something, it would be more difficult for them." - Ben
