When Was Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor Memorial ~ Oahu, Hawaii 1177 young men who were 19-20 years old lost their lives, when the ship the "Arizona" was sunk, during the bombing of Pearl Harbor. 1102 of them still lie in their watery grave in the sunken ship. Very emotional and sobering to see.


Josh Hartnett in Pearl Harbor. Initially, I wanted to see this movie because he was in it. I watched it once and fell head over heels in love with the movie, the cast, everything about it. And yes, I absolutely still do bawl my eyes out when Danny dies!


Dec. 7, 1941, 22-yr-old Cornelia Fort became the 1st American woman pilot in a combat zone while flying over Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked. While 2 other civilian planes were shot out of the sky, she made it thru' the strafing & landed her plane. She was among the first pilots recruited for the Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron. In March 1943, she was killed by a midair collision while on a ferrying mission to Dallas.

Josh Hartnett: Josh Hartnett Pearl Harbor

Josh Hartnett - Pearl Harbor. Was so in love with him in this movie!


FAKE: Women firefighters douse flames during the Pearl Harbor attack. FACT: The picture was mislabeled (maybe to make it more dramatic) even in the original Time Magazine piece. But MSNBC's Bill Dedman found out two years ago that the photo, which was supposed to have been taken on Dec. 7, 1941, was actually shot during a training exercise.


America says!: Dude, Japan, you know I think you're awesome, but the next time you decide you want world domination and you randomly show up at my house and shoot me down in my own back yard, I will blow you up and this time there'll be NOTHING LEFT.


This photo shows the aftermath of the bombs dropped on Pearl Harbor by Japan during world war 2. This was what finally got the U.S to join the fight. Japan ended up surrendering.

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.
