About Pearl Harbor:
It’s likely that December 7, 1941 started just like any other day on the beautiful island of Oahu. Before the day was through, young boys would see Japanese planes roaring toward Pearl Harbor where they would carry out attacks and leave thousands dead, propelling the U.S. to enter World War II.
The audacity of the attacks shocked most of the world, for 60 years (until 9/11/01) it was the deadliest attack on American soil. Today, visitors come to Pearl Harbor to learn and remember the thousands of people who were killed during the attacks.
