Remembering 75 year ago today

Pearl Harbor was the defining event in my life. It shaped who I am, and all of my hang-ups and my drives, I think, stem from that. – David Suzuki

Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell, no! – John Belushi

Pearl Harbor caused our Nation to wholeheartedly commit to winning World War II, changing the course of our Nation’s history and the world’s future. – Joe Baca

You ask what is our aim? I can answer in one word: Victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terror. Victory however long and hard the road may be. For without victory there is no survival. – Winston Churchill

As costly as it was in the lives of our men and women in uniform, in military assets, and in esteem and pride, Pearl Harbor was a watershed moment for America. – Joe Baca

Millions of people gave their lives fighting fascism and imperialism, but Pearl Harbor was the event that forever changed the course of human history. – Sam Graves

We must be the great arsenal of democracy. For us this is an emergency as serious as war itself. We must apply ourselves to our task with the same resolution, the same sense of urgency, the same spirit of patriotism and sacrifice as we would show were we at war. – Franklin D. Roosevelt

The lesson of Pearl Harbor ought never to be forgotten, and of course the motto that came from that, 75 years ago, the war which my dad fought, was ‘Remember Pearl Harbor, never again.’ We need to keep that to mind. – Oliver North
