Pearl Harbor John Doe is a serviceman who was killed when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Pearl Harbor Attack

At about 7:48 AM on December 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service conducted a surprise military strike against the United States at the naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. This serviceman was killed in the attack, but the details on his death are not specified. His remains were located between 1941 and 1944, but not identified. As a result, he is likely considered Missing in Action while his remains were buried in Section F, site 68 of the Punchbowl at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Overall, 2,335 Americans were killed in the attack. The surprise attack led to US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to declare December 7, 1941, "a date which will live in infamy". The following day, the US Congress declared war on Japan which led to the United States' formal entry into World War II.
