Pearl Harbor Day

Posted by Ann Tatum | Dec 07, 2018 | 0 Comments

Today 77 year ago, the Imperial Japanese attacked sovereign American soil and killed 2403 American citizen's in a surprise attack.   This unprovoked act would forever alter the course of the world!  It shocked the American people and the next day we declared War on Japan and then on December 11 declared War on Germany.   Ultimately we were victorious in both Wars.

Japan intended the attack as a preventative action to keep the U.S. Fleet from interfering with its planned military actions in Asia.  

President Franklin D. Roosevelt called it, "A day that will live in infamy".  

There are few remaining military from that era but their sacrifice and heroism will never be forgotten.  The US Navy today said, On this – a "date which will live in infamy," we remember and honor our fallen shipmates.

Today, the American flag should be flown at half-staff until sunset to honor those who died as a result of the attack on U.S. military forces in Hawaii.
