Monday will be the 68th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. I was born on the 18th anniversary of this day in our history and have read, listened and watched just about everything about that day. I’ve read the history, the conspiracy theories and the just plain FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt). This was a changing point in our history that got us into WWII. I won’t go into my thoughts on why or what happened other than to say that I believe more could have been done to prevent the loss of 2,403 American lives that day and the many more that lost their lives in WWII.
Below are links to important facts about Pearl Harbor. Read them, remember them so we don’t make the same mistakes now and in the future.
