National Pearl Harbor remembrance day      

"YESTERDAY, December 7, 1941 a date which will live in infamy the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan."

-President Franklin D. Roosevelt Dec 8th 1941


Today is Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, it’s been just over 80 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor in the Hawaiian Islands. We take time today to honor the more than 3,500 Americans who lost their lives or were wounded on that solemn day. The Japanese attack damaged several battleships, sinking both the USS Arizona and USS Oklahoma.
