Today marks the 71st Anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. More than 2000 American servicemen died during the bombing raid in which President Franklin D. Roosevelt called, "A date which will live in infamy."

The attack drew the United States into World War II. Hundreds of ships and aircraft were sunk or badly damaged, including the battleship USS Arizona which lost more than 1100 crewmen on December 7, 1941.

More than 2000 people are expected at Pearl Harbor for a ceremony there today.
