    Pearl Harbor Day

    On this date planes from a Japanese task force of four fleet class aircraft carriers hit Hawaii. About 2,500 were killed. Only two battleships were lost. The Oklahoma capsized with few losses but the Arizona's powder magazine had blown sky high killing more a thousand sailors, nearly one-half of all Hawaiian fatalities.

    Six months later at Midway Island an outnumbered U.S. fleet sank all four aircraft carriers leading another Japanese thrust. One U.S. carrier was lost. It was the decisive naval battle in U.S. history. Admiral Chester Nimitz's sailors had turned the tide. Eisenhower hadn't even packed his undies for Europe.

    Congratulations to our Navy on this day. Well done.
