U.S. to Mark 67th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor Attack
With an eye on the immediate aftermath of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, thousands of World War II veterans and other observers are expected on Sunday to commemorate the 67th anniversary of the devastating Japanese military raid.
The theme of the event —"Pacific War Memories: The Heroic Response to Pearl Harbor" — is something of a departure from the past.
Usually, the commemoration focuses on the attack on the USS Arizona, Pearl
Harbor and several other installations on Oahu. But this year's
remembrance ceremony will center more on the months following the raid,
said Eileen Martinez, chief of interpretation for the National Park
