Gov. Ducey honors veterans during Pearl Harbor Day remembrance

08 Diciembre 2017

On this date 76 years ago, Pearl Harbor was attacked by Japanese forces, leaving over 3,400 casualties and pushing the U.S.to join the Allies in World War II.

The ceremony is set to begin at 12:55 p.m. - the exact time the Japanese attack began.

President Donald Trump slightly misquoted one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's best-known speeches in a tweet commemorating the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.

Several american ships were destroyed on that day "which will live in infamy" on December 7, 1941.

Judge Rick Romley, Admiral Ron Tucker, and State Historian Marshall Trimble also took part in the remembrance activities. The war claimed the lives of more than 400,000 Americans and an estimated 50 million people across Europe, Asia, Africa and - of course - Hawaii, then an American territory.

Thursday is the 76th anniversary of the attack that launched the US's involvement in World War II. "11/7/1941 Thank you to all military for your courage and sacrifice!"
