December 7, 1941 – A Day Never to Be Forgotten

Today is National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

Seventy one years ago 2,400 Americans were killed and many injured when Japanese fighter pilots bombed the American naval base at Pearl Harbor near Honolulu, Hawaii. A day after the assault, President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan, bringing America into WWII.

Remember to fly your flag at half staff until sunset today in honor of those who fought and those who died at Pearl Harbor.
