“Yesterday, December 7th, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.” President Roosevelt uttered these words seventy-five years ago when the Japanese military bombed the U.S. military base in Honolulu, Hawaii. More than 2,400 Americans lost their lives on this horrific day, spurring the United States to enter World War II.
It is important to take this time to remember all those that have served and given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our God-given unalienable rights and freedoms. The Clarion would like to thank all the men and women that get out of bed every morning to go out and protect this great nation. God bless all those who have served and who are currently serving.
