Celebrating the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor Naval Base

Celebrating the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor Naval Base

A ceremony was held in the US state of Hawaii to mark the 80th anniversary of the Japanese invasion of the Pearl Harbor naval base.

The memorial service was attended by relatives and veterans of those killed in the attack.

There was a minute’s silence at the time of the attack, but the annual commemoration could not be held last year due to the corona virus.

US President Joe Biden also paid a courtesy call on World War II in Washington to pay tribute to the bravery of those who sacrificed their lives for the United States.

At 7:55 a.m. on December 7, 1947, the Royal Navy planes crashed at Pearl Harbor Naval Airport, killing more than 2,400 American soldiers.

It should be noted that after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States also joined the Second World War.
