Pearl Harbor Survivors Commemorate 77th Anniversary of Attack

On the morning of December 7, 1941, a Sunday, Japanese bombers flew across Oahu, Hawaii, and began their assault.

The attack killed more than 2,300 people, nearly half of them on the battleship USS Arizona. More than 1,100 were injured. After the attack, President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered a speech before Congress, calling December 7th a “date which will live in infamy.” The U.S. declared war against Japan. (AP)
