Pearl Harbor 1941

7 Dec

Seventy-one years ago today.

December 7, 1941, Japanese planes attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Territory, killing more than 2,300 Americans.

The U.S.S. Arizona was completely destroyed and the U.S.S. Oklahoma capsized.

A total of twelve ships sank or were beached in the attack and nine additional vessels were damaged.
More than 160 aircraft were destroyed and more than 150 others damaged.

Take a moment to remember those who died.
