Remember to thank our veterans on Pearl Harbor Day
70 years ago, 2,388 American service personnel lost their lives during the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. This event thrust our country into war on the world stage. 408,306 American Service men and women lost their lives and another 670,846 were wounded during the course of World War II. The veterans of this war become fewer in number by the day, but their contributions are not forgotten...Much like our generation shall remember our military personnel fighting for us and the 2,740 Americans (including 343 of our brother firefighters) killed during the surprise attacks of September 11, 2001. Please take the time to thank our WW II veterans and all defenders of our great nation on this day of remembrance.
