Remembering Pearl Harbor

This day of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was proclaimed by FDR as one that would “live in infamy.” The first wave of the assault of torpedo, bombers, and fighter planes began at 07:55 a.m. The attack killed over two thousand Americans, destroyed 188 aircraft, destroyed battleships Arizona and Oklahoma  and damaged numerous others.
The attack followed over a decade of growing tensions between the U.S. and Japan and led to the Dec. 8, 1941 U.S. declaration of war on Japan that got the United States involved in WWII. (read more…)

This assault on America forever changed not only the lives of so many soldiers and their families nationwide, but also solidified the ongoing relationship of Cobb County, Georgia and the U.S. Armed Forces.
Congress, by Public Law 103-308, as amended, has designated December 7 of each year as “National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
