The service will honor all of the military personnel who were stationed at the naval base in Pearl Harbor when it was attacked by 360 aircraft from carriers of the Japanese Imperial Navy. It was the greatest loss of life ever in an attack on a USA warship, the National Park Service says.

The proclamation is in honor of the 76th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor and the more than 2,400 Americans who lost their lives in the attacks.

This morning Mayor Richard Dziekan ordered the flags at Derby City Hall to fly at half-staff in remembrance of the "day that will live in infamy".

The attack's immediate impact was to jerk America out of its lingering isolationism and into full-fledged combat in World War II.

The war, as we know, altered geopolitics for the rest of the 20th century and ushered in the nuclear age with the atomic bombs that forced Japanese surrender and ended the war in 1945. He wrote "Countdown to Pearl Harbor", which examines the 12 days leading up to the December 7, 1941, attack. The correct way to write the Pearl Harbor attack's date is 12/7/1941.
