National Pearl Harbor Day of Remembrance
On Dec. 7, 1941, Japan attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor. National Pearl Harbor Day of Remembrance commemorates that day and honors the 2,400 people who died on the Hawaiian base of America’s Pacific Fleet.
During the attack on Pearl Harbor, hundreds of aircraft and ships were damaged and thousands of service people were injured or killed. This attack was a surprise to the United States, which precipitated the U.S. military to join WWII and side with the Allies.
