“A day that will live in infamy…”

Seventy years ago today, December 7, 1941, the United States Navy was attacked by Japanese planes in an unprovoked event in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

The events of that day is still discussed in school history lessons to this day, and the loss of life has only been surpassed by the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States by Muslim extremists.

I have been to Pearl Harbor, and I have also been to the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, where many of those bodies recovered were laid to rest. Let us not forget what happened that day, nor forget those whom died in that event. Through historical footage and the vivid images from my visit there, I know I never will forget.
