Remembering Pearl Harbor Day: 69 years later

1

Today, 69 years ago, Japanese military forces attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor in what was then the territory of Hawaii. Although there is not a day off to remember it, there are plenty of resources online to take a look at and remember the events that brought the United States into the Second World War and cost the lives of 2402 Americans.

The National Park Service has a comprehensive history lesson plan complete with table of contents and pictures.

The Honolulu Star-Bulletin also had a story about this in 1999.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “Day of Infamy Speech.”

There are plenty more resources to find if you want, but I am sure you can all find some more on your own. But although you may not be at home today, its worth it to take a minute or two and look back.

  1. MSNBC got some very good people. They’ve got a good-looking set. All They’re first-class. Somewhere along the way, they kind of lost their identity as a news channel, and they started doing a lot of other sort of magazine-type programming.
