Sixty-Seven Years Ago

Sixty-seven years ago, tomorrow, 2390 people lost their lives during the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, by the Imperial Japanese Navy. [1]

Citizens of the United States - along with all people who live in free countries and all those that long for freedom - are encouraged to take the time to reflect on this event and on the sacrifices made in response to it by the "Greatest Generation."

Here is a link to a Youtube clip of the speech delivered by President Roosevelt (one of our preeminent brothers) after that attack. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VqQAf74fsE
