Remembering Pearl Harbor

From The Founders, Religion and Government:

"I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."
~ Quote Attributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto
No one is sure whether he said it, but it does represent his feelings on the attack.

And the giant paid a heavy price for sleeping:

188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed
2,403 Americans were killed
1,178 others were wounded

Never forget!
