December 7, 1941 – Attack on Pearl Harbor

In the US propaganda showing hatred for Japanese was posted. In the poster above it shows an American man, wearing a patriotic shirt, present at the attack of Pearl Harbor. The man appears to be drowning in the water with sinking ships surrounding him and Japanese planes flying above, the man has his fist in the air showing his hatred and his persistence not to give up. The propaganda says Avenge Pearl Harbor our bullets will do it. This means the US will get back at Japan for their actions.

Most people think I was named for the state but it’s not true, I was named for a battleship.. the USS Arizona. My grandfather was serving on the Arizona when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and he saved 19 men before he drowned. Pretty much everything my father did his whole life was about honoring that sacrifice. I was raised to be a good man in a storm, raised to love my country, love my family, protect the things I love.

Vintage Recruitment Poster WAAC Pearl Harbor quickly put an end to the debate over accepting women directly into the Army. When faced with fighting a 2-front war, supplying men and materiel for war, military and politicians realized women could supply additional resources desperately needed in the military. The Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) was officially established in May 1942 to provide women to fill support roles and free up more men for combat duty.
