Seventy-five years ago, Japan attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor. The strike killed more than 2,300 people and propelled the United States into World War II.

The anniversary brings back memories — not just for those in the military, but also for those who lived in Hawaii. Molly Solomon ( @solomonout) from Hawaii Public Radio shares some of those voices.
