Remembering Pearl Harbor

Today marks 75 years since the attack at Pearl Harbor. That grim day marked a turning point for the United States, influencing the decision to join World War II. On this anniversary, we want to take a moment to remember and thank those who have served for our country. We have a responsibility to recognize those who made the ultimate sacrifice, allowing for our great nation to become what it is today. Thank you to all who have served, and to those who continue to protect the American way of life.
