Today marks 75 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor, sparking the United State’s involvement in World War II.

Check out The Post Record’s coverage here for local events happening in the area to mark the significance.
“We give thanks to the veterans and survivors of Pearl Harbor faced down fear itself, met infamy with intrepidity, freed captive peoples from fascism and whose example inspires us still. For out of the horrors of war, this Greatest Generation forged an enduring international order, became the backbone of the middle class and powered America’s prosperity. Their courage and resolve remind us of that fundamental American truth—that out of many we are one; and that when we stand together, no undertaking is too great.” – President Obama, 12/7/2016
