7 Dec 1941 is a “Date that which will live in infamy, “ as stated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt during a speech a day later.  At 0800 Sunday morning, 7 Dec 1941, the Japanese attacked the United States at the naval base at Pearl Harbor. 2403 US Citizens lost their lives in the attack and another 1178 were injured. Included in the death tolls were 68 civilians.  About 20 US ships were lost including the USS Arizona where 1177 crew were killed.  This attack brought the United States into WWII.  Canada announced war against Japan within hours of the attack while the United States declared war the following day.  YHC has been Q’ing some Christmas Workouts across the AOs recently but today being the 80th Anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, YHC recycled an old weinke and modified it for today.
