Today, the United States will mark the 82nd anniversary of the Japanese attack on the U.S. Naval Base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

The surprise raid on the major U.S. Navy Base near Honolulu killed more than 2,400 Americans and left another 1,100 injured. In short, the strike signaled the entry of the United States into World War II.
