Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is December 7. In 1994, Congress designated this national observance to honor the more than 2,400 military service personnel who died on this date in 1941, during the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, by Japanese foreces. The attack on Pearl Harbor caused the United States to enter World War II.
Gallaudet is open on this day.
