On the morning of December 7, 1941, the Japanese launched a surprise air attack on the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. After just two hours of bombing, more than 2,400 Americans were dead, 21 ships had either been sunk or damaged, and more than 188 U.S. aircraft destroyed.

The attack at Pearl Harbor so outraged Americans that the U.S. abandoned its policy of isolationism and declared war on Japan the following day — officially bringing the United States into World War II.

Within the next year maybe two their will no longer be any veterans that saw the Attack on Pearl Harbor. We need to thank all the Veterans of WWII for their service and sacrifice. Time is running short. The youngest WWII vet is 86 years old or there abouts. They will soon be a memory. Thank them for saving us from learning to speak Japanese.
