On December 7th, 1941, a date which will live in infamy, hundreds of Japanese planes attacked Pearl Harbour and the Island of Oahu, Hawaii. The devastating surprise attack killed 2,403 and wounded over 1,000. It marked USA’s entrance into WWII. While the ships were still burning, patriots from across our country enlisted to fight back. Eventually, Japan surrendered on the deck of the USS Missouri, ending WWII.
Visiting Pearl Harbour
Today at Pearl Harbour, the USS Arizona Memorial commemorates the attack and the Battleship Missouri symbolizes the end of WWII. We encourage everyone to visit Pearl Harbour and honor the Heroes and Survivors who served our Nation.
