Last month we recognized the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. On that infamous morning of December 7, 1941 hundreds of Japanese fighter planes attacked Pearl Harbor Naval Base, inciting the start of World War II. In a little under two hours the surprise attack managed to kill about 2,000 American soldiers and nearly destroy 20 naval vessels, eight battleships and 300 planes.

It’s hard to believe that this tragedy was so long ago, but the memory and effects live on to this day. From sunken battle ships to memorials — guests flock year-round to visit Pearl Harbor to remember what took place 75 years ago.

It’s a day that will live in infamy. And 75 years later, the events of that day, on a small island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, will be remembered and honored not just in Hawaii and across the United States, but around the world. 
The theme of this year’s ceremonies, “Honoring the past, inspiring the future,” aims not just to remember the events of Pearl Harbor but to bring it forward so that today’s generation can know about and understand its impact on history. 
It will bring together the living survivors of the attack – likely for the last time – with more than 50 events taking place over the course of two weeks. These events include everything from movie screenings to musical concerts as well as parades and memorials. Most are free and open to the public. 
Throughout the day on December 7, reflection ceremonies will take place all day starting from 7:45 a.m. through 7:30 p.m. starting with the National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Commemoration at Kilo Pier. A few of the major events taking place at this year’s Pearl Harbor 75th Remembrance Day on December 7 include:
