Remembering Pearl Harbor
Now, we remember a day that will forever live in infamy in the United States: December 7th, 1941. On that day, Japanese planes attacked Pearl Harbor, the American naval base near Honolulu, Hawaii. The United States declared war on Japan the next day, catapulting the country into World War II. This summer, as part of an oral history project, students at Washington College in Chestertown spoke with those who experienced World War II first-hand. One of them was, Tom Noble, who lived in Hawaii where his dad was stationed in 1941.
