December 7th, 1941.
At the time of the attack, more than 60,000 service men and women were serving in Hawaii. More than 2,400 were lost on the 7th, with nearly 1,300 more wounded. The attack was a turning point in United States history on several levels, but today is not about any of that.
Today, we remember the men and women–the wounded and the lost as well as those who survived and who came to the fore in a time of need–on that fateful Sunday morning 75 years ago today.
