From Kasich’s Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day resolution: “We remember the lives lost that tragic December morning and we owe all men and women of our military a debt of gratitude that we can never fully repay.” 

At 7:55 a.m. on Dec. 7, 1941, 2,400 Americans were killed and 1,200 were wounded when 360 Japanese warplanes descended on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in a surprise attack, according to history.com.
