Remember Pearl Harbor

December 7, 1941, a date that will live in infamy. Don't forget.  More than 2,400 soldiers, sailors, Marines, and civilians dies that day -- almost half of them on the battleship USS Arizona, which sank in minutes early in the attack:

The Arizona is the only ship that sank during the attack that remains on the bottom of Pearl Harbor. A memorial to the hundreds of sailors and Marines who died on the Arizona and remain insider her is a major tourist attraction there. I used to go fishing at the nearby docks on Ford Island:

I doubt the public schools teach much about that day anymore.
