Pearl Harbor survivors to remember those killed

Pearl Harbor survivors to remember those killed

Japan launched the surprise attack with airplanes and submarines on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor. When asking Congress for a Declaration of War, President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously called the attack "a date which will live in infamy".

America pauses Thursday to remember the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor that brought the US into World War II.

Today, the USA government is urging China to cut off North Korea's supply of oil, and President Donald Trump is saying if China won't do it, "we will".

This morning's ceremony at Benedictine begins at 9:15 a.m.followed by a parade.

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.

The National Park Service and the U.S. Navy will host a ceremony to honor and remember the Americans who lost their lives in the World War II attack.
