Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is observed annually in the United States on December 7 to remember and honor the 2,403 victims who were killed in the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. On August 23, 1994, United States Congress designated December 7 of each year as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. It is a tradition to fly the Flag of the United States at half-staff until sunset in honor of the patriots lost that day.

Memorials have been built to remember or to symbolize the day. Located in Hawaii, the "Mighty Mo" was the last American battleship ever built, and the last to be decommissioned. The surrender of the Japanese on the deck of the Missouri brought World War II to an end; it remains one of the most impressive highlights in her illustrious, 50-year career, spanning three wars, and three generations of American men and women.
Pearl Harbor Veterans
In 1990, leading up to the 50th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Congress established the Pearl Harbor Commemorative Medal. This is also known as the Pearl Harbor Survivor's medal and was awarded to anyone who was in the U.S. Armed Forces and who was present in Hawaii on December 7, 1941 and participated in combat operations that day against the attack.
