Today is the 70th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, which launched the United States into WWII and the day Japan awakened a sleeping giant. May we never forget the Greatest Generation and their true sacrifice to our country.

As the generation of Pearl Harbor Survivors, WWII veterans, and home front civilians pass away, the stakeholders of WWII history pass on to the next generation the hope and promise to remember the events that changed their lives
and the course of history.

The 70th Pearl Harbor Day Commemoration is an opportunity to explore the legacy of Pearl Harbor through the lens of American memory. All generations of Americans should be involved in the exploration and discovery of this history.

"Any body who says they wasn't scared, didn't mind dying."
