Pearl Harbor Attacked 71 Years Ago Today

Posted: Updated:

More than 2,000 people are expected to gather at Pearl Harbor today, marking the 71st anniversary of the deadly attack.

A moment of silence is planned for 7:55 a.m., the moment the Japanese began bombing the naval base.

There will also be a ceremony remembering the 2,390 members and 49 civilians killed in the attack.

The attack on Pearl Harbor drew the United States into World War II.
