Thursday, April 11, 2013 - 9:00pm

An emotional anniversary was remembered today on board the USS KIDD in Baton Rouge – a kamikaze plane hit the side of the ship 68 years ago today.

The attack happened just off the coast of Okinawa, which is south of Japan.

Thirty-eight crew members were killed and fifty-five were injured.

At 1:55 p.m. - the exact time it happened almost 70 years ago - some of the survivors took time out to remember the attack and the nearly 40 who died.
