A brief History on Pearl Harbor;
Originally named ai Momi (waters of pearl) by Hawaiian natives Pearl Harbor is a reinforced natural harbor, where the historical U.S. Naval base is centered on the southern coast of Oahu and is roughly six miles west of the state's capital Honolulu. Currently faculty to the joining bases of Pearl Harbor Naval Base and Hickam Air Force Base with roughly 13, 700 enlisted Naval members, and over 5,400 active Air-force members, it is to date the United States most recognized military facility. The base became a focal point in American history on December 7th, 1941. Known now as “The Battle of Pearl Harbor”, the unannounced aerial attack was commissioned by a combined fleet of Japanese military under Prime Minister Tojo Hideki and commander in chief Yamamoto Isoroku. The attack was intended to neutralize the U.S. Pacific Fleet while protecting Japanese advances toward accessing oil and other resources from Malaya and the Dutch East Indies. This futile barrage was the result of 3,400 U.S. casualties of which 2,300 were fatal. Having ended all desire for neutrality among the nation, Congress declared war on Japan on December 8, 1941 just one day later, which became the American admission to the second World War.
