(Left) A rare picture of USS Arizona sinking during the second attack wave on Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941. Remembering... the attack on Pearl HarborArmy Staff Sgt. Gretel SharpeeJTF Guantanamo Public Affairs____________________________ Today, Pearl Harbor remains an important part of U.S. history reminding us of the capabilities of our enemies. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people, in their righteous might, will win through to absolute victory. Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger. with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph. So help us God. I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire.
