Lunch & Learn: Pearl Harbor

The attack at Pearl Harbor is the single event most often associated with World War II. For many Americans, it symbolizes the evils that were victoriously overcome. But what actually happened 75 years ago, December 7, 1941? And what was the sequence of events that led to Japan’s brutal aggression? This power-Pointe presentation explores the historical relationship between Japan and the United States, and details the beginning of our involvement in WW II. From the sinking of the Arizona to the creation of its unique floating monument, this is a tribute to the men and women who served in the Pacific Theatre, and a salute to the bravery and courage epitomized on that historic day.
