Old and young U.S. warriors gather at Pearl Harbor to commemorate “A Day of Infamy,” December 7th, 1941.
Seventy-one years ago, in a brazen act of what we now call international terrorism, the then Empire of Japan struck the United States at a point closest to Japan and killed a lot of military and civilians and knocked out the U.S. Naval Fleet in the Pacific. Every year since, those who were there or who were affected by it gather to commemorate what then President Franklin Roosevelt declared was “A day that shall live infamy.”
The latest observance at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was carried out today as in all years past and likely for many more years hence.
