On the morning of Sunday December 7, 1941 members of the Japanese Empire suddenly and without provocation launched a suprise attack on Pearl Harbor. The attack began at 7:55 a.m. when most of the military men and women stationed at Pearl Harbor were still asleep. In total, four U.S. Naval Ships were sunk. Among the ships sunk was the U.S.S. Oklahoma. Additionally, four other ships and 92 naval vessels were heavily damaged. More than 2300 U.S. Miliary Men and Women gave their lives at Pearl Harbor.
Soon after the attack, leaders of the Empire Of Japan claimed victory in the Pacific Ocean, boasting that they had ‘struck a crippling blow’ to the U.S. Military. However, Pearl Harbor had the exact opposite effect on the U.S. Military.
Most Americans considered the attack at Pearl Harbor to be ‘cowardly’ and considered it to be a ‘sucker punch’. Within a matter of days after the attack, American men and women began to rally behind the cry ‘Remember Pearl Harbor!’. The rally cry remained a part of mainstream America until September 2, 1945 when the leaders of the Empire Of Japan unconditionally surrendered to the U.S. Military. Posted By Divorce Attorneys Tulsa
