BOSTON (CBS) – Somber ceremonies across the country marked 70 years since the attacks on Pearl Harbor, a day President Franklin D. Roosevelt said would “live in infamy.”
At the Charlestown Navy Yard on Boston Harbor, people on board the USS Cassin Young remembered more than 2400 people killed on that day.

The USS Cassin Young was named in honor of a Navy Captain awarded the Medal of Honor for his bravery that day.
Don Tabbut, who placed a wreath during Wednesday’s ceremony will never forget what he heard and saw just three days after he arrived at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.
He saw the ships ahead of him getting blown to pieces.
Tabbut also vividly remembers seeing wounded sailors with tattered clothes.
