REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR - DECEMBER 07, 1941:
Japan's December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor and six other military bases on the Hawaiian island of Oahu that precipitated America's entry into World War II, a global conflict. Pearl Harbor endures as a symbol of American resilience and resolve, and the annual commemoration of the attack on Pearl Harbor fosters reflection, remembrance, and understanding.
REMEMBERING THE PAST:
The 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor is an opportunity to honor the sacrifice and dedication of our "Greatest Generation" both civilian and military, they endured incredible sacrifices on December 7, 1941, the "date which will live in infamy." It would thrust America into World War II, changing Hawaii and America forever and continues to define their place in the world. The events of that date triggered our resolve as a nation, our can-do attitude and resourcefulness and an unmatched commitment to the defense of freedom.
INSPIRING THE FUTURE THROUGH DUTY | HONOR | COUNTRY
Understanding past events and their consequences can inspire reverence for an emotional commitment to peaceful solutions to conflict. How do we help future generations chart their way toward peace and prosperity? A key focus of the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor will be to bridge the gap between our generations to better understand and learn directly from those that endured December 07.
