75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR … GOD BLESS THOSE THAT WERE LOST
We ask all to always remember and never forget … Today marks the 75th anniversary of the day the United States was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the Empire of Japan and America would never be the same. So many brave lives lost at the hands of such a cowardly act. It was a time of innocence lost; however, Americans would strike back against their foreign aggressors and save the world from tyranny. Today, as always, we remember those brave men and women that died that fateful day. So many lives affected by that single heinous act; however, as history would record, Japan awoke a sleeping giant. That reprehensible, treacherous act unified a country and in fact awoke a sleeping giant that provided the resolve to win a war against the evil Axis. We remember those still living, sadly there are so few today.
God Bless the heroism of Our Greatest Generation!
Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with the government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.
Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleagues delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.
It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.
The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.
Attack at Dawn
- It’s always hard to relive those events again. One thing for sure we must never forget those who lost their lives and those who tried to save lives.

September 11, 2001 – As It Happened – The Initial Bulletins
We live in a world that is more dangerous than September 11, 2001 because of political correctness and cowardly leaders not willing to admit the truth and who and what we are frighting.

Due to health reasons, however, Thompson — now in his 90s — has been unable to visit the ship, according to the Battleship Iowa news release.
With the help of volunteer coordinators, the chief selects from the Fleet Anti-Submarine Warfare Training Center visited Thompson’s home and sang the Navy’s march song, “Anchors Aweigh” in the middle of his residential street.
While the singing went on, Thompson stood and saluted, “inspiring those around him,” the release stated.
The remarkable thing, according to a spokesman for the museum, is that Thompson had a fall earlier this year and had not been able to walk or stand since then.
After the singing concluded, the chief selects walked one-by-one up to Thompson on the veteran’s porch to shake his hand.
