“A day that will live in infamy” is tomorrow, December 7th. Early that morning in 1941, “Naval and Air forces of the Empire of Japan” attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The quotes are from President Franklin Roosevelt’s address to Congress the next day requesting a declaration of War. Today tourists visit the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor. The ship was never raised and became a final resting place for her crew members who died in the attack.
