TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Dec. 7, 1941 was a day that has lived in infamy.
On that day, 1,177 sailors aboard the USS Arizona died when Japanese forces sank the ship, which was docked in Hawaii.
Overall, 2,340 U.S. military members and 48 civilians died in the attack, which claimed 12 ships and 164 aircraft and plunged the U.S. into World War II.
The University of Arizona commemorated the day with a morning event.
Eight of the victims were from Arizona and their names were read as the bell from the U.S.S. Arizona rang.
