Let Us Never Forget

Today is the 71st Anniversary of “a date which will live in infamy,” the Attack on Pearl Harbor. We must never forget the men and women who gave their lives that day, and those men and women who gave their lives in the war that followed. Here are some links about that infamous day. Educate yourself, lest we forget.

This video is a News Reel from 1942. I always find these News Reels fascinating:

This video is an except of the 2001 film, Pearl Harbor, starring Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett, and Kate Beckinsale. I love this film, not because of its historical accuracy, that is scant, but for the fact that the sheer horror of the day is so clearly communicated. It breaks my heart every time I see. And here it is for you to watch in these two clips.
