Remembering Those We Lost at Pearl Harbor

You're wondering why a new caption isn't being released today. There is a good reason why. Today, we remember the tragic events that took place 72 years ago. December 7, 1941 is a day which forever lives in infamy. This is the day when the Japanese attacked the U.S. military base at Pearl Harbor, Oahu, Hawaii. This attack catapulted the United States into World War II.

We shall never forget those who gave their lives in the service of our country on that fateful day, nor shall we forget those who risked or gave their lives in the service of our country in World War II.

50 Years Ago...America's Unspeakable Tragedy

"Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country." This is what John F. Kennedy said in his Inaugural Address in 1961.

50 years ago today, America went into mourning as its young 35th President had his life tragically cut short by an assassin's bullet in Dallas, Texas. This tragedy unfolded on our television sets and on the radio. 

This video is from CBS' coverage of the day's events, as posted to YouTube.

It is an unspeakable tragedy that many who were around in 1963 will never forget. This blog entry is being released 50 years to the minute after the announcement was made of JFK's passing. No one told America's story better that day than Walter Cronkite.
