Memorials Planned for Anniversary of Pearl Harbor Attack

Dec. 7, 1941


NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa., Dec 6 (Reuters)—World War Two pilot Henry Heim, now 92, says he can still hear the sounds of the attack on Pearl Harbor vividly.

Looking back on the fateful morning of December 7, 1941, when Japanese bombers pounded the U.S. Pacific fleet, Americans like Heim are marking the anniversary on Saturday with solemn public ceremonies and private moments of reflection.
