Not all were sailors of course, my grandfather was in the Army and stationed at Scholfield Barracks near Wheeler Field. At the time of the attack most of the soldiers were in the breakfast line, many men were killed right there.

AnswerThey were getting ready to go to Sunday mass....reading their letters from home,cleaning gun barrels, knapping in their onboard cots, you know, relaxing...it was the weekend. AnswerA lot were sleeping. It was Sunday morning, they were sailors and many had been out late on Satuday night.

The primary target at Pearl Harbor was the US Navy (Sailors), the US Army (Soldiers) were a secondary target. US Servicemen were just waking up on a Sunday morning, when the attack came.
