69 years ago America was invaded by Japanese fighter pilots for one of the worst attacks on American soil.  Today, we remember.

Being 25 years old I was not around for the events of December 7, 1941.  The only thing I can compare it to is 9/11 but I would assume the feeling of shock and devastation were about the same.

My Grandfather was just a young man when the attack happened but he joined up with the United States Navy and fought in the Pacific battles throughout WWII.  My family was fortunate not to lose anyone is those attacks but today is the day that we take a little time to remember the young men who did lose their lives on that fateful December day, "a date that will live in Infamy".
