70 years ago.... a "Day of Infamy"

It was 70 years ago today. Teach your children about this attack. Make sure it stays fresh in the memory of our youth. Make sure that our guard is never let down again and our soil is well protected.

December 7, 1941: At 0755, Hawaiian time, the first wave of Japanese aircraft begin the attack. Along with the ships in Pearl Harbor, the air stations at Hickam, Wheeler, Ford Island, Kaneohe and Ewa Field are attacked. For the next 2 hours and 20 minutes, the attack persists. When it's over, more than 2,400 Americans are dead and nearly 1,200 wounded. Eighteen ships have been sunk or damaged. More than 300 aircraft are damaged or destroyed.

December 8, 1941: President Roosevelt addresses Congress and asks for a declaration of war against Japan, which he receives.

April 18, 1942: A then-Lieutenant Colonel James "Jimmy" Doolittle, leads Sixteen U.S. Army Air Forces B-25B Mitchell bombers, launched from the U.S. Navy's aircraft carrier USS Hornet, toward Honshu, Japan. This was a near suicide raid. No one was expected to survive. They knew the dangers involved and knew that the Japanese need to get their little asses spanked. All Aircraft was lost, 11 crewman killed. For the first time since Pearly Harbor, American troops had hopes of victory. Moral was boosted and Japan was shown to be vulnerable.

I did that this past July with my daughter. Plan to do it every few years with her. It is laid out very nice. It is a Time-line style museum. We even got to me General Hagee. It was really cool. Emily had a broken arm at the time. He asked what happened. She told him "I can't stand still in line and fell." He smiled. I said, "We are going to send her to you and get that fixed." he laughed.

My grandfather was in the navy and told me that his ship was the one the president took over to sign the treaty. He had lots of stories about the war. Different breed of men back then.

The Japanese Instrument of Surrender was signed on the USS Missouri on September 2, 1945. The Treaty of San Fransisco ended the war officially. It was signed 1951 I think September 8. It went into effect in 1952.

Edit: Googled it. My memory is better than I thought. September 8 1951 the treaty was signed and it went into effect on April 28, 1952.

Here is a pic that shows what defeat looks like. Taken from the Deck of the Missouri as the Japanese are about to surrender. your Pappy had a first class seat. it must have been an amazing feeling to be on that ship and know what was about to happen.

That was the one. Called my granny and she corrected me and said the ship was carrying General MacArthur not the president. He had a ton of old photos like that. Thank you for sharing.
