70th Anniversary Of The Attack On Pearl Harbor
December 7, 1941 was proclaimed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to be “a day which will live in infamy,” because this was the date that the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
A quick look at what happened on this day - World War II was already underway in many other parts of the world. The United States wasn’t completely involved until the attack took place.
The U.S. lost eight of its battleships, 180 Aircraft and the saddest part - more than 2,400 Americans Killed and over 1,200 wounded because of this attack. The surprise attacks shook the island of Oahu, Hawaii.
Because this is a very important part of American history, we acknowledge this very dark day. Please give a moment of silence for the brave veterans who were injured or killed because of the attack.
There's a group of individuals that was formed in 1958 called the association of Pearl Harbor survivors. According to a story I saw from AP, they will be disbanding at the end of the month because of the age and poor health of its remaining members
As always, a big thanks you to the men and women who have served and still serve in our armed forces. God bless.
