77th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack

On the morning of Dec. 7, 1941, a Sunday, Japanese bombers flew throughout Oahu, Hawaii, and commenced their assault.

The assault killed greater than 2,300 folks, practically half of them on the battleship USS Arizona. Greater than 1,100 had been injured. After the assault, President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered a speech earlier than Congress, calling Dec. 7 a “date which can reside in infamy.” The U.S. declared battle in opposition to Japan. (AP)
