    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden have marked the 80th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor with a visit to the World War II Memorial in Washington.

    The Dec. 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor and other locations in Hawaii killed 2,403 service members and civilians and was a defining moment leading to U.S. entry into the war.

    Joe Biden touched a wreath at the memorial and saluted on Tuesday.

    The first lady laid a bouquet honoring her father, a Navy signalman in the war.

    In a White House proclamation last week recognizing National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, the president thanked "the Greatest Generation."
