Pearl Harbor Day, 2017 -- December 7, 2017

76 years ago a sneak attack by forces of the Japanese Empire sank or damaged much of the US Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor in the territory of Hawaii. The Japanese Empire came to regret doing this.

Dreadnought USS Tennessee (BB-43) was commissioned in 1920.  During the attack on Pearl Harbor, she was hit by two bombs, but both failed to explode properly.  After being repaired and modernized at Puget Sound, she spent the rest of the war supporting the island hopping campaign and the Aleutian campaign.
