Today is the 71st anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, which triggered America's involvement in the Second World War. Many men and women died that day, and many more would die, in battle or from injuries, in the years to come. Each year, veterans pass away without telling their stories, whether from that war or others since. Please take this weekend to seek out a veteran and record his or her story, on paper or with an audio or video recording, and scan or copy photos, letters, diaries and other documents that record the experiences. Keep the information for your family, donate it to a local library or historical society, or send copies or originals to us for inclusion in Our Military Heritage. We can scan typed or digitized material and return the originals, along with an electronic copy. The people who served need to be remembered.
