Pearl Harbor Memorial

"Yesterday, December 7, 1941–a date which will live in infamy–the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan."
– Franklin D. Roosevelt, on the morning after Pearl Harbor

The Pearl Harbor Memorial events are conducted across America and dedicated to the men and women killed or injured during the surprise attack on December 7, 1941. Learn about how America entered into World War II and the sacrifice demanded of our Armed Forces with team building and a history lesson. Participants who finish this event will receive the unique Pearl Harbor Memorial patch which is always earned and never sold.
