Pearl Harbor Day #3 -- December 7, 2012

71 years ago a sneak attack by forces of the Japanese Empire sank much of the US Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor in the territory of Hawaii. The Japanese Empire came to regret doing this.

Among the ships sunk was the battleship Oklahoma, shown here in a 1930s postcard view passing Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay.  USS Oklamoma (BB-37) was commissioned in 1916.  U.S. Naval Historical Center Photograph. Photo #: NH 84546-KN
