A Date Which Will Live in Infamy...

Today is the 75th anniversary of the 
Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

December 7, 1941.

"A date which will live in infamy."

Last year, we visited the 
USS Arizona Memorial.

It was very moving.
Thinking of all those young people,
going about their business, on a Sunday morning.
Before the surprise attack by 
Japanese Imperial Navy.

Many ships were sunk.
The harbor was turned into an inferno,
by the burning oil from the ships.

The memorial is built, straddling the sunken ship.

It's arranged so that it doesn't touch the ship,
which is actually the tomb of so many sailors and marines.

1,177 men died on board the USS Arizona.
229 bodies were recovered.
The rest still lie here.

The next day,
the United States entered World War 11.

Today, let's pause to honor these forever-young men,
who perished,
75 years ago today.

"A date which will live in infamy."

Rest in Peace
