december 7, 1941

Today marks the 70th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor and the United States entry into World War II, Let us not forgot those brave men and woman which we lost on that tragic day. As a look back on this day of infamy, The movie “Tora Tora Tora” so wonderfully shows both sides of the attack from each country’s perspective and is a worthy view to best remember the events that happened oh so long ago.

    Seventy years ago. Absolutely unbelievable. Thanks for the post, John. Here in Arizona our flags are at half-mast today. It’s a sad occasion but it’s nice to know that people remember.

    This happened on my grandmother’s 7th birthday. 😦

    Nice post honoring the men and women who died bravely in a cowardly sneak attack. They will definitely never be forgotten.

    A day that will live in infamy, indeed, and then some. I have been at the AZ memorial in HI. It’s really quite chilling.

    RIP all those that served and lost their lives on this day 70 years ago.

    Tragic and historic day.

    Also, gave us one the best war movies ever (Tora, Tora, Tora!), and one of the worst (Pearl Harbor).

    A day of reverence for the lives lost that day. I’ve always wanted to visit the site in Hawaii to pay my respects in person. May we always remember them on this day and teach those who come after us to do the same!

    My late sister had her 11th birthday only 2 days before. Must have been terrifying.

    My father in law, who was topside on the battleship TENNESSEE during the attack, is there right now participating in the festivities. If anyone of you fine folks have not gone to PH, do it. You will not forget it!

    We had two survivors from the USS Oklahoma as vip guests at our local model show back in October. Their stories were incredible. Zeros were flying so low and in between ships that those that didn’t have a gun were throwing tools, and other items, basically anything you could pick up and heave into the air at them in attempt to fight back. All I could do was thank these to men for their service and sacrifice.

    I know the attack on Pearl and events like 9-11 are horrific and not pleasant to think about, but we cant forget.
