  • Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day — December 7th

    Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is observed each year on December 7th. On that fateful morning in 1941—as unsuspecting American soldiers, sailors, and civilians on the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, followed their regular routines—hundreds of Japanese planes suddenly appeared in the sky overhead. Before people on the ground could grasp what was happening, the planes began dropping bombs and torpedoes on the ships in Pearl Harbor and strafing nearby airfields with machine-gun fire. The surprise attack shocked, outraged, and united the American people like few other events in U.S. history. Immediately afterward, the United States declared war on Japan and officially entered World War II.
