We Can Never Forget the History of Pearl Harbor

On the morning of December 7, 1941, as many of the men and women stationed there slept in their beds the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. When the attack, which lasted just over 2 hours was finally over, 2,402 had lost their lives and another 1,282 were wounded. As news spread to the states it came as a complete shock to an entire nation. In FDR’s speech declaring war against Japan on December 8, 1941, he spoke the words that still echo today ; ‘December 7th, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy’ – and as a nation mourned it also prepared to go into battle against the Japanese Empire.
