Remembering Pearl Harbor
On a Sunday morning exactly 72 years ago, a Japanese aerial attack awakened Pearl Harbor. It took fewer than two hours for more than 350 Japanese planes to paralyze the Pacific Fleet. And with that, the United States had entered World War II.
The loss shocked the nation, but we responded with a vengeance. We honor all who answered the call that fateful morning and salute those who have been fighting to defend our freedom ever since!

THEY CAME IN PEACE
October 23 of this year marked the 30th anniversary of the terror attack on the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon. It was the largest nonnuclear explosion in history. Thirty years later, it still is. Our Life of Duty Frontlines team returned to Beirut to remember, and to honor, those whose lives were lost.
