Today have a moment of silence in honor of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. Pearl Harbor was bombed on December 7, 1941. It was a surprise attack that killed over 2,400 Americans and drew the United States into World War II. Franklin D. Roosevelt coined the term “Day of Infamy” specifically in regards to this day. This year will be the 78th anniversary of that deadly attack. The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center will be hosting a National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Commemoration. There will be a Hawaiian blessing and there will be a vintage aircraft flyover.
