The Attack

it was December 7, 1941 many people were just waking up. Some still asleep including me. I was woken up to the sounds and shakings of bombs. I heard screaming of pain. I got up as fast as I could. People told me it was japan in order to keep our military out of military actions japan was planning. This took about seven hours. I was one of the few people that survived. I didn't have the time to count, but I knew there was roughly 300 bombing planes atleast. All of our naval ships were damaged and four sunk. 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded. Japanese losses were nowhere near as many as our loses they lost 29 aircraft and five midget submarines, also 64 servicemen killed. this attack led to war world two. I will never forget the attack on Pear Harbor.
