2015-12-07 - Pearl Harbor Day
On their website, Pearl Harbor Commemorative Committee shares the history and significance of the attack. They begin with:
"The December 7, 1941 Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor was one of the great defining moments in history. A single carefully planned and well executed surprise attack that removed the United States Navy's battleship force as a possible threat to the Japanese Empire's southward expansion. America, unprepared and now considerably weakened, was abruptly brought into the Second World War as a full combatant."
