    Yesterday, Dec. 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.


    RIP

    I hear this is the last year th4 Pearl Harbor survivors will be marking this date due to the age of those involved

    December 7 is a day to remember, but it is August 14 that should be celebrated.
