Remembering Pearl Harbor, 67 Years Ago Today

Sixty Seven years ago, December 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, bringing the United States into World War II.

Yesterday, December 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.
