Still infamous (BR)

Exactly 65 years ago today, the Japanese Imperial Air Fleet conducted a two-hour bombing raid upon the U.S. Naval base at Pearl Harbor and several other military installations on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, killing over 2,400 Americans, including 2,335 U.S. servicemen and setting the stage for American entry into our last just war.

Let's all of us take a moment today to reflect on the horror, the ignominy, and the occasional necessity of war, and the deep gratitude we owe those who put themselves in harm's way to defend our lives and our freedoms.
