It was the elder generation’s September 11th, an unprovoked attack on U.S. soil.

Today, Saturday Dec. 7, marks the 72nd anniversary of Pearl Harbor day.

That attack by the Japanese-on the island on Oahu, Hawaii is what made the United States get involved in World War II.

Roughly 25 hundred U.S. marines, sailors, and soldiers were killed that day.

More than two thousand others were injured.

There are three known survivors from that day. That includes 95-year-old Jackson B. Davis, a former state senator from Louisiana.
