Today is Pearl Harbor Day
Eighty years ago on a pleasant Sunday afternoon, the tranquility of the nation was shattered when reports started coming in from an American territory in the Pacific. The nation received the news by way of radio. The Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor in Hawaii and the next day, Congress declared war on the Japanese. The result of America’s entry into World War Two led to massive military and industrial buildup that resulted in the United States becoming the world’s leading Superpower.
