The Veterans of Roseville put on the ceremony, which included prayers and song:


GOD BLESS AMERICA


World War II vet Frank Mellin attended the event:
 
Today means so much to me, my country I love so dearly, and I just pray and hope that we can remain a country free with liberty and justice for all.
 
Vivian Borden was living in Honolulu when the Japanese attacked:
 
I did not see my husband for four days and four nights.  He was driving truck, hauling bodies to be buried in a trench.
 
More than 24 hundred people were killed in the attack, which precipitated America’s involvement in the war.
