Pearl Harbor, December 7th 1941

Today commemorates the 69th anniversary of the attack by the Japanese of the US Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  Over 2400 military personnel lost their lives in the early morning surprise attack. 

The United States keeping out of aggressions in the Pacific and Europe for years, declared war on Japan and Germany declared war on the US.  World War II would continue until Germany's surrender on May 8th, 1945 and Japan's surrender on September 2nd, 1945.
