This December 7, we remember Pearl Harbor.
On the morning of December 7, 1941, the Japanese navy launched a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor near Honolulu, Hawaii, propelling the U.S. into World War II. In this video, we hear from 5 of our veterans and civilian POWs whose memories of that day live on. As we remember Pearl Harbor 77 years later, we thank our veterans for their service and for sharing their stories.
