Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story will remember those who served in the attack of Pearl Harbor. A surprise Japanese air attack essentially destroyed the U.S. Navy's Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
Doug Ducey paid tribute to veterans Thursday as a ceremony in Phoenix commemorated one of the most tragic days in American history. When asking Congress for a Declaration of War, President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously called the attack "a date which will live in infamy".
Judge Rick Romley, Admiral Ron Tucker, and State Historian Marshall Trimble also took part in the remembrance activities. The attack propelled the United States into World War II.
Around 2,300 American servicemen died in the attack, with just over 1,000 more injured.
That's why, 76 years later, it's appropriate for the nation to pause and remember Pearl Harbor - and never forget the sacrifices in a catastrophic conflict that shaped our world today.
