SPOKANE, Wash. -

To mark the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks, five Spokane veterans were honored Sunday for their service there 73 years ago.

Dozens came to give their thanks at the Pearl Harbor Survivors Memorial Stone, erected outside the Spokane Arena.

A few men shared their memories of December 7, 1941.

"I was on the Battleship Tennessee, which was 75 feet in front of the Arizona. So I watched the Arizona when it blew up, I watched the Oklahoma when it turned over," said Ray Garland.

"A bunch of fighter planes were going in and diving on them, and I didn't realize they were shooting at the time," said Charles Boyer.

Mayor David Condon was also on hand to honor all veterans for their service.

"A veteran is someone who at a point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to the United States of America for an amount up to, and including, his or her life," said Condon.

A list of the five Spokane men honored:
