Asheville, NC - Message from Executive Director December 2019
Since that fateful day of 7 December 1941, America and its Allies in the Pacific experienced defeat across almost every front at a shocking speed. The defensive outposts in the Pacific crumbled before the Japanese juggernaut. From the White House to the Navy and Army war planners, a haunting question arose … how and when will we be able strike back? History would later record that the three fateful months, beginning in April and ending in June of 1942, would see the tide of war change in the favor of the United States and its beleaguered allies.
HONOLULU (AP) — A U.S. sailor shot three civilians with his service weapon, killing two of them, before taking his own life at Pearl Harbor, just days before thousands descend on the storied military base to mark the 78th anniversary of the Japanese bombing that propelled the United States into World War II.
