Editor’s note: This Saturday, Dec. 7, America will observe with sad memories the 72nd anniversary of the Japanese attack that launched U.S. involvement in World War II.


December 7, 1941 , Japan attacked our naval base at Pearl Harbor without warning;

in an act of undeclared war that peaceful Sunday morning.


The planned attack inflicted massive destruction on ships and countless innocent lives;

as wave after wave of Japanese planes strafed and bombed everything in sight.
