Gov Proclaims Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

Lewiston ceremony today marks 76th anniversary of attack on Pearl Harbor

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump visit the USS Arizona Memorial on November 3 at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu.

In Savannah, Benedictine Military Academy will pay tribute to all those who died in World War II.

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is observed every December 7 to honor the 2,403 US citizens killed in the Japanese surprise attack on Hawaii's Pearl Harbor on that date in 1941. Much previous years, the ceremony will begin at the chapel on base and conclude with wreath-laying at the Pearl Harbor memorial.


2,402 Americans were killed in the surprise attack by the Japanese that targeted the Pacific Fleet of the U.S. Navy. Over the next four years, Americans endured a long, bloody slog.

The war, as we know, altered geopolitics for the rest of the 20th century and ushered in the nuclear age with the atomic bombs that forced Japanese surrender and ended the war in 1945.

It's Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, and the first couple might want to also remember.to triple-check their tweets before posting.
