Today is the day we were sneak attack by the Empire of Japan.
Thousands of American's died during a sneak attack on Sunday morning December 7, 1941.
Many thousands more died for our freedom in the followin years.

May God Bless those who have paid it all and all Veterans serving today and keep them safe protecting our freedom.

I always remember today in history. It's a reminder that tomorrow is our anniversary. We were scheduled wit the judge to get married on the 7th. He said that there was one major diaster on that day and didn;t want to repeat it. So he postponed it till the 8th. Must have worked, tomorrow will be 41 years

Well said CB. Lowered my flag early this morning. Too many of my relatives served and died for our freedom for me to forget.
Dad was a Thunderbird, served in the 45th infantry at North Africa, Sicily, Salerno, and invasion of Rome. Not only loved him for being my Dad, but ALSO what he did in his life for all of us.

What is the name of the first country to declare war upon Japan because of that attack?

Hint: Not the US of A

Great pictures chrisy-don't think I've seen any that detailed before.

I always said the Greatest Generation was born on this date in 1941 and came of age on in places like Normandy, Iwo and Tarawa

True, but some of them cut their teeth on the great depression. They were up and running by '41 and served as the big brothers for the younger ones.
