70 Years Ago Today, A Day That Lives In Infamy

Today is the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. On December 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy launched a surprise attack on the Hawaiian U.S. naval base that would forever change the course of history.

Instead of crippling the US, it brought us together to win the war. To quote Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, "I fear all we have done is awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." The next day we declared war on Japan and three days later on Germany.

Thank you to all of our Veterans and patriots that rose up to defend America.

Our country is going through the most challenging times now since WWII. As proud Americans let us rise to the occasion and be filled again with resolve.
