Today is Pearl Harbor Day, 71 years ago this morning at 0755 Hawaiian time the Japanese Navy began its attack on the US Navy Fleet anchorage in Pearl Harbor Hawaii. The attack lasted for two and a half hours and cost the lives of 2,402 Americans and 64 Japanese. The navy lost 6 Ships sunk, 4 of which were Battleships and additional 13 sips were damaged to a greater or lesser degree.
Let us all take a minute today to reflect on the attack on Pearl Harbor and the war it started. Most importantly, let us remember the men who lost their lives that day and the hundreds of thousands who followed them in WWII.
