79th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor
Monday marks the 79th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
December 7th, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt called it “a date which will live in infamy.” Hundreds of Japanese bombers attacked the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard.
Twenty-one ships of the Pacific fleet were sunk or damaged, including the USS Arizona which lost more than 1,100 crewmen.
More than 2,400 Americans were killed in the attack and some 1,100 were wounded.
The attack drew the United States into World War II.
