Remembrance of "a Date which will live in Infamy"



Remembrance of "a Date which will live in Infamy"
Memorial Service Today at the Virginia War Museum

It’s December 7th Pearl Harbor Day. 7 December 1941 Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor was one of the great defining moments in history. A single carefully-planned and well-executed stroke 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. We Remember!

Remember Pearl Harbor: Pearl Harbor Day Memorial Ceremony on December 7, 2009 at 4:00pm at the Virgina War Museum, 9285 Warwick Blvd.?, Newport News. This annual event features a wreath-laying ceremony at the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association monument on the grounds adjacent to the museum.
