USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, the underwater tomb for 1,177 Sailors and Marines
The following day, President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked the Congress for a Declaration of War in his famous "Day of Infamy" speech. This is a link to that speech and a photo of the Congress in session that day.
We respect, honor, and admire these survivors on the anniversary of the most horrific day in each of their lives.
There are two events in American History that shaped what Tom Brokaw has dubbed "the Greatest Generation": The Great Depression and World War Two.
I have to add my Friend Travis's posting about Pearl Harbor as well.
