The U.S. Navy and National Park Service are hosting a ceremony Monday in remembrance of those killed on Dec. 7, 1941. About 3,000 people are expected to join the survivors.

HONOLULU -"December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy." 

Monday marks 74 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor. Just before 8:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning, nearly 400 Japanese warplanes attacked the home port of the United States' Pacific Fleet.

The results were devastating. Five battleships, three destroyers and seven other ships were sunk or severely damaged, and more than 200 aircraft were destroyed.

About 2400 Americans were killed and another 1200 were wounded, many while attempting to repel the attack. Because of the attack, the United States entered WWII, a four-year effort costing more than 400,000 American lives.

A commemorative ceremony will take place Monday at Pearl Harbor and around the country.
