WWII vet abruptly breaks into song as Trump signs Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day proclamation

A World War II veteran broke into song during a White House visit as President Donald Trump signed the National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day proclamation on Thursday.

“One great battle cry could be heard by American friends and foes alike: Remember Pearl Harbor,” Trump said.

When he asked the WWII veterans, “Have you heard that before a few times?” one of the men broke into a rousing rendition of Sammy Kaye’s “Let’s Remember Pearl Harbor.”

The room quieted as the vet — identified by CBS News as Michael Ganitch — sang a portion of the 1941 song.

“Remember Pearl Harbor/ Just remember Pearl Harbor as you did the Alamo/ We should always remember how they died for liberty/ Just remember Pearl Harbor and go on to victory,” Ganitch sang.
