Pelosi releases statement honoring Americans on 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement Tuesday, remembering the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

“Seventy-five years ago today – a ‘date which will live in infamy’ – more than 2,400 Americans were killed in the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.  On this National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we honor the service members and civilians we lost, we listen to the stories from survivors and pay tribute to Americans of all backgrounds who answered the call to serve, rallied to defeat tyranny, and defended freedom around the world,” she wrote.

“With President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe set to visit this sacred ground together later this month, the world will again witness America’s leadership and resolve in strengthening global stability, peace, and security.

“Today, let us remember those lost at Pearl Harbor by renewing our enduring commitment to liberty.  Let us take inspiration from the achievements and powerful lessons of those who volunteered and served in our Armed Forces.  And let us strive to build a stronger America and better world together.”
