A country must not forget the cause and effect and cause and affect of the diplomacy they practice. The past marks the future and the present makes tomorrow. Let us not relive history but honor it. #Repost @usinterior (@get_repost)
On a quiet morning 76 years ago today, Imperial Japanese forces attacked the United States at #PearlHarbor, #Hawaii. More than 2,400 Americans were killed and 1,100 more wounded. Twenty-one ships of the Pacific Fleet were sunk or damaged, including the USS Arizona. Shocked and angered by the attack, the country joined the Allied forces to fight World War II, inspired by the call of “Remember Pearl Harbor.” A moving reminder of the service and sacrifice of those who fought, the USS Arizona Memorial is jointly administered by the U.S. #Navy and the National Park Service.
