It is every American’s obligation to remain vigilant, to remember from our nation’s history and to ensure that fateful day in history serves as a lesson to our youth. It was the notorious day, which moved America from peace to conflict, a sudden shift to paying the consequences of war. Intrepidly, not backing down, thousands fought for the flag they love.
We have living legends among us on Long Island. Sadly though, there are fewer than four valiant soldiers on Long Island who were present that day and survived the attacks on Pearl Harbor.
It is important that we remember this day, remember the sailors who were killed, many in their sleep, as the harbor was invaded. Remember the thousands of civilians who witnessed the attacks, whose lives were changed forever on the infamous day.
