By Tierra Warren:
More than 2,400 Americans perished and 1,178 military personnel and civilians were wounded. In the attack, America lost 188 aircraft, 8 battleships, 3 destroyers, 3 cruisers, and 1 minelayer.
Today we pause to remember the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor. We at The Heritage Foundation salute and remember the men and women in uniform who served this country then and those continue to do so today.
