But what actually happened 75 years ago, December 7, 1941? And what was the sequence of events that led to Japan’s brutal aggression?

From the sinking of the Arizona to the creation of its unique floating monument, this is a tribute to the men and women who served in the Pacific Theatre, and a salute to the bravery and courage epitomized on that historic day.
