"12-7-1941: A Date Which Will Live In Infamy"



Bookmark and Share

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

"December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy,"Former President Franklin D. Roosevelt said the next day of the attack.

Just before eight a.m. on a Sunday morning, nearly 400 Japanese warplanes attacked the home port of the United States Pacific Fleet.

Five battleships, three destroyers and seven other ships were sunk or severely damaged, and more than 200 aircraft were destroyed.

About 2,400 Americans were killed and another 1,200 were wounded, many attempting to repel the attack.

Because of the attack, the United States ultimately entered World War II.

Wednesday morning, Preston Olson, veteran and member of the 40 and 8 helped us look back on the events that transpired that tragic day in history.
