Remembering Pearl Harbor 76 Years Later

People throughout the country will honor the victims of Pearl Harbor as Thursday marks 76 years since the attack.

December 7, 1941 is a day that will live in infamy and the day the United States joined World War II.

More than 2.400 Americans were killed during the Japanese attack on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.

Another 1,100 were injured.

Several U.S. ships were destroyed and the USS Arizona still remains underwater, along with some crew members.

An observance ceremony will take place Thursday morning in Pearl Harbor.

The ceremony is followed by a moment of silence at 7:55, marking the time of the attacks.

The U.S. Air Force and Hawaii Air National Guard will also conduct a fly-over.
