National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is observed annually on December 7th.

On this 76th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, we pause to remember the 3,581 brave citizens who gave their lives or were injured in defense of our nation on that fateful day.

In a speech to Congress on December 8th, President Franklin D. Roosevelt called the bombing of Pearl Harbor “a date which will live in infamy.” Congress declared war the same day.

We will never forget their commitment to duty and country, nor will we forget their sacrifice. Please join me in silent reflection or by saying a prayer in their memory.
