December 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy, President Franklin Roosevelt said in his address in the aftermath of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

President Franklin Roosevelt quickly addressed Congress to ask for a declaration of war. This the beginning of the involvement of the United States in World War II.

December 7, 2019, marks the 78th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. In the Japanese surprise attack on the major US Navy base near Honolulu, more than 2,400 Americans were killed.
