75th anniversary on attack on the U.S. at Pearl Harbor

On this 75th anniversary on the attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor, we bring you images and FDR's historic speech declaring war on Japan.

Were you old enough to recall the events on December 7, 1941? If so, please tell us about it. 

Did you ever hear stories from your grandfather or grandmother?  

From an aunt or uncle? 

From your father or mother?

Tell us about it. Leave a comment below.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt's speech:




There is no shortage of conspiracy theories that the U.S., potentially, knew something about an attack. Did the U.S. allow the attack to occur?  Who knows - your thoughts?

No matter your stance, a horrible day for America and the world.

Facts:

  • 353 Japanese bombers struck Pearl Harbor
  • Destroyed eight U.S. Navy battleships
  • More than 2,400 deaths from events
  • 1,177 died on the USS Arizona








In the Los Angeles Times today, there is a terrific article about a 96-year old Navy veteran that was one of the last people to leave the USS Arizona.  Please review the article HERE by David Montero on his book about Lauren Bruner and his horrific experiences while being on the deck of the USS Arizona.
