Tomorrow is Dec. 7. Exactly 66 years ago today the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared this date as "a day that will live in infamy."

On this date, 66 years ago the United States, shocked and angered by this unprovoked attack, entered into a war to defend our people, our nation and our freedom.

Men and women across this great land rose to the call and answered this atrocity with defiance and a determination that we Americans would not be beaten.

Just six years ago in September, the United States was once again attacked. Once again the people united in defense of their homeland, their ideals, their freedoms.

Men and women are right now, risking their lives to safeguard the freedoms we so cherish and to try to extend those same freedoms for others.

The words FDR spoke so long ago, still ring true: "With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbending determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph--so help us God."
