On December 7, 1941 Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in the US Territory of Hawaii. It was a complete surprise. Most of the Pacific Fleet was destroyed. Many brave young men were killed.
How many people remember that horrible event? Today I noticed the flag was at half mast. I hope the folks in town knew why? We always need to remember there are bad guys out there.
Let's salute our soldiers and sailors on this "Day of Infamy" so declared by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Their vigilance helps keep us free.
