National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day December 7th

Monday, December 7, 2015


Pearl Harbor in Hawaii was attacked without warning by the Imperial Japanese Navy on the morning of Dec. 7, 1941, claiming more than 2,400 American lives and bringing the United States into World War II. 
The attack by hundreds of Japanese warplanes and submarines on the U.S. naval base took just 90 minutes and sank four battleships and two destroyers and damaged many other aircraft, buildings and ships.
The day marked the deadliest foreign attack on American soil, until Sept. 11, 2001. President Franklin D. Roosevelt called on Congress to declare war on Japan, saying the famous words that the date of the attack “will live in infamy.”
