Remembering Pearl Harbor, 76 Years Later

Today marks 76 years since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

Several American ships were destroyed on that day “which will live in infamy” on December 7, 1941.

Listen to President Roosevelt’s complete “Infamy Speech” below.

The USS Arizona still remains sunken along with the remains of some of its crew members.

According to the US census, 2,403 Americans were killed in the attack.

1,178 more were wounded.

    We roped them into it by cutting their oil supply. The first shots were fired from the ward sinking a mini sub. We knew they were coming. The air attack was by aircraft whose design was lifted from the Hughes racer and Vought aircraft. 4 battle ships sunk and 4 heavily damaged and many more ships. Aircraft were lost never to have left the ground.
