UNDATED (www.incnow.tv) - December 7th marks the 71st Anniversary of Pearl Harbor, the day the Japanese launched surprise air attacks on the United States.

More than 2300 Americans died. There will be a memorial parade in Waikiki.

In New York, Pearl Harbor survivors will commemorate the anniversary with a wreath-laying ceremony at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum even though the museum is still closed because of damage from Hurricane Sandy.

A Pearl Harbor Day ceremony will also take place Friday evening in Fort Wayne at 7 p.m. at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.
