Tammy Duckworth Honors Pearl Harbor Day
The unexpected and tragic attacks on Pearl Harbor that occurred 75 years ago today--a date that even now still lives in infamy--triggered America to go to war. As a result of the unprovoked attacks in 1941, many of our brave servicemen and women lost their lives. Today and every year on December 7th, I hope we each take a moment to reflect on and pay tribute to the sacrifices made by those who were injured or lost at Pearl Harbor. And let’s each re-dedicate ourselves to ensuring their lives were not lost in vain by honoring and upholding the quintessential American values and freedoms they were fighting for.
