Pearl Harbor Day, 2019 -- December 7, 2019

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

Dreadnought USS Maryland (BB-46) was commissioned in 1921.  She was at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked in 1941. She was damaged, but was repaired. She was at Tarawa, Kwajalein Atoll, Saipan, Leyte Gulf and Okinawa. U.S. Naval Historical Center Photograph. Photo #: 80-G-455000.
