Remembering Pearl Harbor
Each year, we acknowledge the work done and sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform. On this date, our country remembers and reflects more than 75 years later on the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941. The National Archives and Records Administration is proud to serve veterans and their families, especially through our work at the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, MO. In addition to veterans’ records, our holdings include historical materials, such as photos, video footage, and military records, which chronicle the military’s history and battles.
