It Was 67 Years Ago Today

Today is Remember Pearl Harbor Day. It marks the entry of the USA into WW II.

You can listen to a bit of Roosevelt's A day that will live in Infamy speech by clicking the link.

At Dawn We Slept: The Untold Story of Pearl Harborby Prange is probably the most comprehensive book on the subject. I reread it often and learn something new every time. It is by my bedside right now.

Let me add that I am glad we are friends with the Japanese. They have been stalwart friends since the end of WW2 and I'd like to see it stay that way.
