Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is Monday, Dec. 7. Monday will be a day many Americans take time to reflect on the day almost 75 years ago. While the day is not a federal holiday (many schools and businesses will be open), it will be a day of reflection.
Many people who reside in Hawaii will be able to take advantage of being in the area in which the attacks happened in 1941. People who want to visit memorials, get tours and even explore Pearl Harbor are able to do so.

For Those Who Can’t Make it to Hawaii
Of course, not many people who don’t reside in Hawaii will be able to get there for Remembrance Day on Monday. However, there are plenty of things that you can do to remember that day and what happened as a result of the day.
Many people light candles, hold services and even go to listen to a reenacted speech (the speech that Franklin D. Roosevelt said on that day). Others go to memorials in their area and pay their respects to those who served in WWII (a war the U.S. entered after the attacks on Pearl Harbor). Some people even venture out to see reenactments of the attacks.
Taking a moment out of your day on Monday to remember those who died so many years ago is special, but being able to take time to see the place where everything happened, tour the submarines and ships and take an inside look at Pearl Harbor is doubly as special. Although many of us will not be able to get to Hawaii on Monday, it will be just enough to remember a day which will live in infamy.
