December 7, 2016 marks the 75th anniversary of the tragic Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that killed over 2,000 people and introduced the U.S. into World War II.
One survivor, 95-year-old U.S. Army veteran, Don Bloomfield of Midland, Michigan was recognized on the floor at the Michigan House of Representatives with Representative Al Pscholka on Wednesday.
