Pearl Harbor

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941, and President Barack Obama has issued a statement in honor of all those who were lost on that day, as well as the veterans and survivors of the devastating attack:

"Seventy years ago today, a bright Sunday morning was darkened by the unprovoked attack on Pearl Harbor. Today, Michelle and I join the American people in honoring the memory of the more than 2,400 American patriots — military and civilian, men, women and children — who gave their lives in our first battle of the Second World War. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families for whom this day is deeply personal — the spouses, brothers and sisters and sons and daughters who have known seven decades without a loved one but who have kept their legacy alive for future generations."
