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.
