On December 7, America marks the 73rd anniversary of the deadly attack on Pearl Harbor. On that same day in 1941, without warning or provocation, bombs fell on the island of Oahu taking more than 2,400 American lives and damaging America’s Pacific Fleet. The attack altered America’s destiny and tested the will of the American people like never before.
At the time, it was the most shocking and tragic day in our nation’s history. But it was also a day that served to ignite American patriotism and our great national spirit.
America had never been so grievously wounded. But Americans refused to stay down, and they rallied together with determination and a sense of urgency with one goal in mind–to do whatever it would take to defend their home and freedom.
