    Some sixty-eight years before U.S. special forces killed Osama bin Laden, America conducted an assassination of another kind. This time, the target wasn’t a terrorist. It was the Japanese admiral who planned the Pearl Harbor operation. But the motive was the same: payback for a sneak attack on the United States.

    A USS Arizona sailor who survived the attack on Pearl Harbor was laid to rest inside the ship he escaped. The remains of Retired Master Chief Petty Officer Raymond Haerry, 94, were interred inside the hull of the USS Arizona Saturday afternoon. More than 100 people gathered at the USS Arizona Memorial for the interment ceremony -- a symbolic military funeral only offered to shipmates who survived the attack.

    The Democrats always pick their best and brightest to head the DNC. DNC chair candidate, Keith Ellison appeared on the O’Reilly Factor a few years ago and when Bill O’Reilly brought up Nazi Germany, Keith Ellison said they bombed Pearl Harbor. You just can’t make this stuff up! Bill O’Reilly: “I will point to history…the same mindset was taken when dealing with Nazi Germany. We’re not going to go in an aggressive action, we don’t believe they’re gong to do this, we don’t believe they’re gonna do that…and they absolutely did everything! So I think you gotta look at history.”...

    'Leaning on that Old Whistle Cord' Proceedings Magazine - December 2016 Vol. 142/12/1,366 By Captain Gordon I. Peterson, U.S. Navy (Retired) A Navy veteran-turned-civilian machinist at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard had “the unusual presence of mind” to sound the air raid alarm 75 years ago, never thinking he was witnessing one of the most cataclysmic events in history. Rudolph E. Peterson—Uncle Rudy to me—left home before dawn on 7 December 1941 to report for duty as the watch engineer at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard’s Power Plant No. 2, Building 149. Located south of the Naval Air Station on Ford...

    Speaking at the Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day ceremony, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack on Wednesday, the admiral made pointed remarks at the San Francisco 49ers quarterback whose claim to fame is his decision to kneel through the national anthem in a show of solidarity with Black Lives Matter. "You can bet that the men and women we honor today, and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago, never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard our national anthem being played," Harris said. That line brought the crowd roaring to its...

    A decorated US Navy admiral took the time to troll Colin Kaepernick during the 75th Anniversary Pearl Harbor Day Commemoration ceremony on Wednesday — saying those who died on that fateful day “never took a knee and never failed to stand” during the national anthem. The remarks were made by U.S. Pacific Command Commander Adm. Harry Harris, who had a father and four uncles serve in World War II. “You can bet that the men and women we honor today — and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago — never took a knee and never failed to...

By planning his attack on a Sunday, the Japanese commander Admiral Nagumo, hoped to catch the entire fleet in port.

    George Elliott was one of two servicemen manning a radar station on Oahu the morning of Dec. 7, 1941. When he reported a huge sighting on his radar screen, he was ignored.At 2 a.m. on April 1, 2001, I was sitting at my computer in my Laguna Beach condo working on a website I’ve long since forgotten when an email popped up with nothing in the subject line. “Do you know who I am?” “Another April Fool’s joke,” I thought to myself as I moved my cursor up to click the Delete button.

    CNN ^ | Wed December 7, 2016 | Daniel Greene
    Seventy-five years ago today, hundreds of Japanese bombers attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor. America's shock, and its grief for the more than 2,000 US military dead on this date of "infamy" led to overwhelming unity of purpose as we entered a world war. Yet America's unity was matched by its profound fears about national security in the days after Pearl Harbor. Well before December 7, 1941, Americans believed that enemy spies and saboteurs lived among us. Some did, though not nearly as many as we imagined. In 1940, the FBI reportedly received 3,000 complaints or tips every...

    Seventy-five years ago, on December 7, 1941, the American Navy suffered the worst defeat in its history when a force led by six Japanese fleet carriers launched a surprise attack at the battleships at Pearl Harbor. Two of the eight battleships, Arizona and Oklahoma, were destroyed, and the other six were knocked out of action for many months. The Army Air Corps fields were attacked with great loss, and other smaller naval vessels were attacked as well. The American carriers were at sea. Had those carriers been at Pearl Harbor, the whole course of the Pacific War would have been...

    In the aftermath of the attacks on Pearl Harbour during World War Two stories emerged of sailors who were trapped in the sunken battleships, some even survived for weeks. Those who were trapped underwater banged continuously on the side of the ship so that anyone would hear them and come to their rescue. When the noises were first heard many thought it was just loose wreckage or part of the clean-up operation for the destroyed harbour. However the day after the attack, crewmen realised that there was an eerie banging noise coming from the foward hull of the USS West...

    When John D. Anderson reached his battle station in the USS Arizona's No. 4 turret that morning, he realized the gigantic guns could do nothing against the swarms of attacking Japanese airplanes. But his twin brother, Delbert "Jake" Anderson, was manning an antiaircraft gun out on deck, and was in the thick of the action. "He needs help," John told his turret commander, and asked if could join his brother. Both men were 24. The sons of a judge, they were born in Verona, N.D., in 1917. Both had joined the Navy in 1936. John was a boatswain's mate second...

Addressing the corrupt media hacks about the upcoming visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Pearl Harbor, Earnest dropped a comment that any WWII veteran would take as an INSULT. From BizPac Review: During a White House press briefing Monday, Earnest was asked whether veterans may be offended by Abe’s visit if he expressed no regret over the...
