SACRAMENTO ~ On December 7, 2023, Governor Gavin Newsom of California issued a proclamation declaring the day as Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. The proclamation was issued to commemorate the 82nd anniversary of the unprovoked attack on the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor by Imperial Japan in 1941.

The attack resulted in more than 2,400 American service members and civilians losing their lives and much of the nation's Pacific Fleet being destroyed. President Roosevelt declared an act of war the next day, calling December 7th a "date which will live in infamy".
