December 7th is National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. It is observed annually in the United States. Americans take time to honor the 2,403 US citizens who were killed in the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7, 1941.
On Thursday, President Donald Trump took time to honor those who died during the Dec. 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.
“Everyone knows about it,” he explained. “But these folks,” Trump added, pointing to the veterans beside him, “know about it more than anybody.”
“They’re heroes and they’re living witnesses to American history. All Americans hearts are filled with gratitude for their service, their sacrifice and their presence here today,” Trump said.
Calling them “very special men,” he noted that “they were among the very first Americans to fight back in the Second World War.”
