The attack on that "day of infamy" claimed the lives of 2,334 servicemen and servicewomen and wounded another 1,143.
The United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, was attacked December 7, 1941, which President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said "will live in infamy".
They'll do it with a new master of ceremonies, U.S. Marine Corps veteran Krista McKinley. Its name came from the pearl oysters that once grew there.
The proclamation honors the 84 Naval Reservists from Minnesota who were "serving on active duty at Pearl Harbor when the first shot was sacked in defense of the United States, sinking a Japanese submarine attempting to infiltrate the harbor defenses before the attack".
American Legion Post 735 will host its annual Pearl Harbor Remembrance Service at noon, Thursday, Dec. 7, to pay tribute to all those who died on that date that plunged the United States into World War II.
I invite you, along with members of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 212, to take a moment to remember the men and women who lost their lives that fateful day.
