Today marks the 81st Commemoration of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day throughout Palm Beach County and all over America. This day marks the moment to the minute 81 years ago when Japanese warplanes descended on Oahu, killing 2,403 service members and civilians, injuring thousands more and dealing a near fatal blow to the Navy’s fleet at Pearl Harbor.

On December 7, 1941, the Japanese military made a surprise raid on the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, killing 2,403 U.S. service members and civilians. More than 1,100 people were injured in the attack, which also destroyed aircraft and naval vessels. The following day, Congress would declare war with Japan. This led the United States into World War II. During an address to a joint session of Congress, President Franklin Roosevelt famously called December 7, 1941 “a date which will live in infamy.”

As Americans we must pay homage to the mostly young Americans who died that day, along with those who served in uniform during World War II or on the home front war effort are collectively known as the "Greatest Generation". Their sacrifices reflect the theme of this year’s Commemoration:  Everlasting Legacy.

The focus is the importance of remembering Pearl Harbor and how the "Greatest Generation" saved citizens from tyranny and brought us peace through reconciliation.
