(From Wikipedia) On Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service attacked Naval Station Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, without warning and without a declaration of war, killing 2,403 American non-combatants, and injuring 1,178 others. The attack sank two U.S. Navy battleships and damaged five others. It also damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, and one minelayer. Aircraft losses were 188 destroyed and 159 damaged.
Remembering the events of this day 75 years ago as the United States was attacked and entered World War II. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called this “a day that will live in infamy” and it was truly a moment that changed the course of history and the war. Remembering the veterans who were lost on this day.
