Pearl Harbor

On this date in 1941, also a Sunday morning in that year, the Japanese Empire attacked the United States, precipitating it's entry into WWII. Europe had already been at war for more than 2 years by this time.

Happy birthday to my cousin Pearl Harbor McDonald. (Not born that year.) :) :)
