NATIONWIDE -- Seventy-two years ago, the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor was attacked.

"December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy. The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan," said Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The attack was carried out by 360 Japanese aircraft.

More than 2,000 Americans were killed in the attack and more than 1,000 more were injured.

Hundreds of aircraft and dozens of vessels were destroyed or damaged.
