Jason Getz

Minnesotans are commemorating the 76th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack Thursday.

On the quiet morning of December 7, 1941, Japan launched an attack on the US naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

The proclamation honors the 84 Naval Reservists from Minnesota who were "serving on active duty at Pearl Harbor when the first shot was sacked in defense of the United States, sinking a Japanese submarine attempting to infiltrate the harbor defenses before the attack".

Each year the number of survivors from that surprise attack on Pearl Harbor grows smaller, but their courage and determination to fight must never be forgotten. The attack by the Japanese would pull the United States into World War II, which would end up taking the lives of over 400,000 Americans.
