The day commemorates the attack by on a USA naval base on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, by the Imperial Japanese Navy and honors the 2,000 American sailors, soldiers, and Marines who lost their lives in the battle.
More than 2,300 servicemen were killed in the assault carried out by Japanese airplanes.
Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story will remember those who served in the attack of Pearl Harbor.
Today, the USA government is urging China to cut off North Korea's supply of oil, and President Donald Trump is saying if China won't do it, "we will". Another 1,000 people were wounded on what President Franklin Roosevelt famously called a "date which will live in infamy".
