USS Arizona survivor dies at 94

One of the few remaining USS Arizona survivors of the Pearl Harbor attack has died.

The National Park Service says Raymond Haerry recently died at the age of 94.

He was born on Jan. 28, 1922 in Patterson, New Jersey, and was most recently living in West Warwick, Rhode Island.

There are now just five remaining USS Arizona survivors.

The attack on Pearl Harbor will be celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.

Special guests are coming to Hawaii to participate in week-long commemoration events, including about 120 Pearl Harbor survivors and their spouses.
