Pearl Harbor Day

December 7th, 2008, is the 67th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. In that attack, over 2,000 American servicemen and women lost their lives.

AIMM recently updated its exhibit on the Pearl Harbor attack, titled “This is War! - USS Hoga and the Pearl Harbor Attack”

The title is taken from a member of USS Hoga’s crew that day. Many Arkansans lost their lives during the attack. In fact, an Arkansan may have been the first American killed in the attack.

For more information about his story and the attack, please come visit AIMM and see the new exhibit.

The U.S. Naval Historical Center Pearl Harbor webpage has extensive resources about the Pearl Harbor attack, including:

  • Oral Histories from survivors

  • Photographs

  • Teacher Lesson Plans

We ask that all our visitors take a moment to remember the men and women lost that day, as well as our military men and women on duty around the world, and to keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers today.
