The date of December 7, 1941 will forever be remembered. It has been etched in many of the elderly individuals I care for. I grew up respecting this day as well. America was changed forever and our safety of isolation had disappeared forever. We were invaded on our own land and our innocence as a country was gone.
The United States will never forget the historical event on December 7th many years ago. To those who perished December 7th 1941 after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor a memorial of the USS Arizona stands as an honorable memorial. It was the USS Arizona battleship that was bombed an sunk during Japan's surprise morning attack on Pearl Harbor. More than 1500 military personnel aboard the ship were killed. This was the greatest loss of life ever in an attack on the U.S. warship and the reason that the U.S. entered World War II.
