December 7, 1941

Arizona Memorial

Every year on December 7th, we remember the attack on our islands. If you get a chance to visit the islands, please make some time to see the Arizona Memorial. You will sometimes find a veteran there willing to speak about his experiences. There are also civilians there who are willing to share their stories about "the day that will live in imfamy". Today, in addition to the rememberance ceremonies, they are dedicating the newly renovated visitor center.

Take A Moment To Thank A Veteran
By Joanna Fuchs

When you see someone in a uniform,
Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty,
Answering their country’s call,

Take a moment to thank them
For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them;
Make it very clear.

Just tap them on the shoulder,
Give a smile, and say,
"Thanks for what you’re doing
To keep us safe in the USA!"
