"A Date Which Will Live In Infamy"



(New York, NY) -- Today marks the 77th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

A wreath-laying ceremony is planned at the USS Intrepid Museum in New York City. Twenty-four hundred Americans were killed and 12-hundred were injured in the surprise attack on the U.S. naval base. FDR, calling it "a date which will live in infamy," declared war on Japan the next day and on Germany three days later. Some Pearl Harbor survivors will attend today's wreath-laying ceremony.
