'Remember Pearl Harbor!' at the National World War II Museum
Pearl Harbor
This week marks the 70th anniversary of one of the most momentous days in American history: the Pearl Harbor attack (see video). The unprovoked strike claimed the lives of 2,402 American servicemen and set millions more on a path to war against the forces of fascism and oppression, a clash that ultimately remade the world's political order.

On Dec. 7, the National WWII Museum in New Orleans will begin "Remember Pearl Harbor!", a 2½-day conference honoring the historic day. This once-in-a-lifetime event will feature decorated battle heroes, renowned historians, award-winning authors, and scores of ordinary men and women who will gather to learn more about the attack and to shake hands with the veterans who sacrificed so much in the name of freedom.

If you can't make the trip, check your local museum or historical society to learn about other Pearl Harbor remembrance events that might be in your area.
