Survivors to gather:
Art Herriford, president of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, recalls watching from his ship, the Detroit, as the Arizona battleship was hit.
"I was looking directly at the Arizona when she went sky-high. It's still hard to believe that in the time period of the snap of a finger, 1,177 lives could be wiped out," said Herriford, 88, of Sherman Oaks, Calif.
