PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (December 7, 2012)--More than 2,000 people were expected Friday at Pearl Harbor to mark the 71st anniversary of the Japanese attack that killed thousands of people and pulled the United States into World War II.
A moment of silence is planned for 7:55 a.m. local time on Friday, marking the moment the bombing began.
The crew of a guided-missile destroyer will stand on deck while the ship passes the USS Arizona, a battleship that still lies in the harbor where it sank decades ago.
Hawaii Air National Guard aircraft will fly overhead in missing man formation.
The Navy and National Park Service are hosting a ceremony in remembrance of 2,390 service members and 49 civilians killed in the attack and will also recognize women who flew noncombat missions during World War II.
