Today is the 68th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor

 

prradio

68 years ago today our nation suffered an attack that then President Franklin D. Roosevelt referred to as “A date which will live in infamy”. The attack propelled a reticent America into the Second World War, a conflict that started two years prior and would continue for another four years. The attack was aimed at preventing the United States from using its Naval forces to interfere with the Imperial ambitions of the Japanese Military.
