Today marks the 61st anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, which was the worst attack on American soil until the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The result of the attack was 2,403 dead, 188 destroyed planes and a crippled Pacific Fleet that included 8 damaged or destroyed battleships.

Please keep those who died that infamous day in your memory and your prayers. Here's TBR's tribute to them:
