Clarksville, TN – The path that Marnie Mueller would forge during her career was, in many ways, foreshadowed by the circumstances that led to the first moments of her life.
Born to Caucasian American parents during World War II, Mueller nonetheless was born behind the barbed wire fences of a Northern California segregation camp designed to keep Japanese Americans contained during the war effort.

Clarksville, TN – I invite everyone to pause today to remember the American military personnel who were killed during the attack at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941. Over 3,500 Americans were killed or wounded during the attack.
There has been so much focus lately, and rightly so, about the safety of our country.
Clarksville, TN – When the Empire of Japan launched their sneak attack on the naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii it was 11:48am local time 74 years ago in Clarksville Tennessee and people were just getting getting out of church and looking forward to a Sunday lunch.
The time was 7:48am in Hawaii on Sunday December 7th 1941, and the sailors of the U.S. Fleet were conducting their Sunday morning worship services when Japanese aircraft attacked. The attack consisted of two waves of 354 aircraft which took off from six Japanese aircraft carriers, the Akagi, Kaga, Sōryū, Hiryū, Shōkaku, and Zuikak.
The first warning of the air raid was sent out via radio to U.S Forces at 7:58am Hawaiian Time on Sunday December 7th 1941.
Washington, D.C. – World War I, also known as “The Great War” at the time, officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28th, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France.
However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11th, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”
