5. December 7 is National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
"On a serene Sunday morning 70 years ago, the skies above Pearl Harbor were darkened by the bombs of Japanese forces in a surprise attack that tested the resilience of our Armed Forces and the will of our Nation. As explosions sounded and battleships burned, brave service members fought back fiercely with everything they could find. Unbeknownst to these selfless individuals, the sacrifices endured on that infamous day would galvanize America and come to symbolize the mettle of a generation." - From a Presidential Proclamation released on Dec. 6, 2011.
Please take a moment to remember in your thoughts the 3,500 Americans killed or wounded during that deadly attack 70 years ago.
