Today is the 80th anniversary when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor

Today, Pearl Harbor survivors, veterans, and visitors from all over the world will come together to honor and remember the 2,403 service members and civilians who were killed and the 1,178 who were injured during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.

During the attack, two U.S. Navy battleships the USS Arizona and the USS Utah sank, and 188 aircraft were destroyed.

On Aug. 23, 1994, the United States Congress designated Dec. 7 as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. Every year, remembrance events are held at the Pearl Harbor National Memorial, culminating in a commemoration ceremony on Dec. 7.
