Pearl Harbor Day, 2018 -- December 7, 2018
77 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 Nevada (BB-36) was commissioned in 1916.  She went to Ireland to protect convoys during World War One. She was at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked in 1941. She was damaged, but was repaired. She was at D-Day and again protected Atlantic convoys.  She was at Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
