Today is Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, which is a reminder of the tragedy that happened this day in 1941. Franklin D. Roosevelt said it was “a date which will live in infamy” as the surprise attack by the Japanese Imperial Army caused more than 2,000 people to be killed. Four very important U.S. Navy battleships sank, and four others were damaged along with hundreds of aircraft destroyed or damaged.
We would like to remember those who lost their lives, their families and those who lived through the tragedy. It is important to never forget this day as it marked an important event in history that changed the lives of many as it also led to declaring war on Japan and entering WW2.
Educate your family members and anyone from younger generations as they may not know the importance of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Point out to them how government buildings and most places that have an American Flag fly them at half-mast out of respect. History must be remembered!
Today is Veterans Day and OurSeniors.net Magazine would like to honor our team members and readers who are veterans.
As many of us may know, Veterans Day was when World War I ended and fighting ceased with an armistice between Allied nations and Germany. It happened on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Although it initially was meant to honor those veterans of World War I, it turned into an observance day for all those who have fought toward the effort of peace during war.
OurSeniors.net has found it important throughout the years to ensure our veterans are always honored and taken care of. What we like to do is team up with organizations that focus on veterans’ services so our senior veterans know what benefits can be provided to them.
Thank you, gentlemen, for your photo representing Army, Navy and Air Force and thank you for your service!
