ABOUT PEARL HARBOR
On December 7th, 1941, the naval base at Pearl Harbor in South Oahu was attacked by Japanese forces. This surprise attack claimed the lives of 2,403 Americans and propelled the United States into World War II. 19 U.S. Navy ships were damaged or destroyed, including the fated USS Arizona, which sank to the bottom of the harbor with 1,777 servicemen still onboard. The USS Arizona remains in the harbor, and the memorial erected on the ship’s hull attracts more than 1.7 million visitors annually. Today, Pearl Harbor is home to numerous museums and monuments that honor the lives lost in 1941 and tell the story of the day that lives in infamy. Pearl Harbor is also still a fully operational naval base, home to 18,000 service members.
