Schatz Statement On The 78th Anniversary Of The Attack On Pearl Harbor

HONOLULU – Today, U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) released the following statement on the 78th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

“Seventy-eight years ago, more than 2,400 American patriots lost their lives at Pearl Harbor. Today, we remember their service, salute their heroism, and honor their families. We also give thanks to the veterans and survivors who answered the call to defend our nation. The Greatest Generation faced one of the darkest moments in human history with bravery and resolve. They achieved what President Roosevelt foretold would be their inevitable triumph: they defeated the forces of tyranny and secured freedom for all the generations that followed. Let us draw from their strength, learn from their love of country, and always strive to live up to their example.”
