70 Years AGO TODAY...


Our county was attacked!

American lives were lost!

We were taken by surprise...

...but they woke the sleeping bear!


"December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan...As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense...With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounded determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God." - President F.D. Roosevelt


Take a moment to remember and reflect. 
Today was not a normal day 70 years ago....
remember how blessed you are today...
you are ALIVE!
