To many Americans “Remember Pearl Harbor” is ancient history. Probably one in 25 Americans today knows what happened at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that day changed the lives of most Americans as the attack plunged this country into World War II.

When word of the attack reached America, the majority of people didn’t know where Pearl Harbor was, and knew little about the Japanese. Although the attack caused major damage to our fleet in the Pacific area, many Americans thought we would defeat the Japanese in short order. That didn’t happen. It was in August 1945 before the Japanese surrendered.
