Pearl Harbor Day


Today December 7th is Pearl Harbor Day, which to many of the “younger” generation we don’t understand the significance of this date but we definitely should. This date is a special day to remember all 2,403 victims who were killed in the Japanese surprise attack on Peal Harbor on December 7th, 1941.

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. On 8/23/94, United States Congress, designated December 7 of each year as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. It is a tradition to fly the Flag of the United States at half-staff until sunset in honor of dead patriots.
