Day of Infamy

On this day in history, Dec. 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor attack kills 2,403 Americans, launches US into WWII

America responded with overwhelming force that annihilated Imperial Japan, Nazi German war machines in less than four years

By Kerry J. Byrne

Imperial Japan launched a devastating Sunday morning surprise attack on the U.S. Navy and other military assets at Pearl Harbor, rousing a “sleeping giant” and thrusting an enraged America into World War II, on this day in history, Dec. 7, 1941.

“For nearly two hours, Japanese firepower rained down upon American ships and servicemen,” reports the National World War II Museum.

The savage raid by aircraft carrier-borne warplanes sunk or damaged 21 U.S. warships — including the USS Arizona and USS Oklahoma — destroyed or damaged 347 aircraft, and killed 2,403 Americans.

“Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy, the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan,” President Franklin D. Roosevelt announced with determined indignation the following day, while asking Congress for a declaration of war.

“No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.”

To this day Hickam, Wheeler, Pearl, and Schofield bear the scars. So does the heart of a grateful nation.

Rest In Peace


The next sneak attack on America from a foreign enemy will be an EMP Strike. The domestic enemies are not even being sneaky about their attacks. We will not recover, as a nation, from either one.

I made mention of this date in history earlier on the FGS Thread. My Salute to the Heroes of the day would include Mr. Fred Johnson, our High School Teacher that was a Pearl Harbor and WWII Survivor. Mr Fred never considered himself a Hero but always said that he served with many.

They were called the Greatest Generation for a reason.

When I was a kid growing up my neighborhood heroes were a
Pear Harbor survivor, a P-51 pilot and my dad a B-17 gunner.
Who do our children look up to today?

My Senior HS “social studies” aka History teacher was a vet who flew in a B26 bomber during the war. He was wounded once by flak. Probably the most popular teacher in the entire HS. He taught well and was funny to boot. Never took himself too seriously. The kids loved him.


Re: domestic enemies.

Please see recent attacks on local electrical power grids in Moore County NC, Oregon and Washington state, and near Camp Lejeune NC.

Starting to look like coordinated acts of domestic sabotage/terrorism?


Nah, just stupid copy-cats.


I will now forget, nor will my children.


Hey, Democrats let us get caught with our pants down and stuck in a war… just sayin’.
