In the morning, President Donald Trump will receive his daily intelligence briefing and then participate in a credentials ceremony for newly appointed Ambassadors to Washington, D.C. according to the White House Press Office. It is assumed that these are foreign ambassadors to the United States of America, not some other diplomatic service with responsibility only to the nation’s capital.
In the afternoon, the President visited with some of the few remaining survivors from the USS Arizona which was attacked and sunk at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941.
There are only five remaining crewmen still alive: Lauren Bruner, 96, of La Mirada, Calif; Lou Conter, 95, of Grass Valley, Calif.; Lonnie Cook, 96, of Morris, Okla.; Ken Potts, 95, of Provo, Utah; and Donald Stratton, 94, of Colorado Springs, Colo.
A sixth, Raymond Hearry passed away in September of 2016 and his remains were interred in April in the sunken wreckage of the USS Arizona at the bottom of Pearl Harbor. Raymond wanted to rejoin his fallen shipmates.
