Today we remember Pearl Harbor Day. On December 7, 1941, the Empire of Japan launched a surprise attack on the US Naval Station at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii in which over 2400 Americans lost their lives and our naval fleet was severely damaged. The next day President Franklin D. Roosevelt called December 7, 1941 “a date which will live in infamy.” The attack on Pearl Harbor drew America into WW 2. On August 15, 1945 Japan surrendered and the surrender documents were finally signed aboard the deck of the American battleship USS Missouri on September 2, 1945, ending the war. The men & women of our Greatest Generation did not hesitate when asked to sacrifice for their country. American men enlisted in droves, American women went to work in the factories and many Americans gave what little money they had to buy the war bonds that funded it all. These men stormed the beaches at Normandy in the name of liberty against unimaginable odds knowing that they probably would not survive. The sacrifice that began at Pearl Harbor is one of the many events that have defined the United States of America as the last best hope of freedom & peace here on earth. I hope we will continue to remember the character of that Great Generation and their love of God, Family & Country! We have so much we should learn & live up to from them!
