Dec. 7, 1941 — the attack on Pearl Harbor — was a day that has remained in infamy. Very few servicemembers who personally remember that day are still among us. The American Legion Auxiliary encourages everyone to do what they can to keep Pearl Harbor a part of our national consciousness. Many brave servicemembers were asleep or about their morning routines when the Japanese bombers delivered a blow that would decide America's involvement in World War II. More than 2,400 servicemembers died during the attack.
The members of the Park Rapids American Legion Auxiliary Unit 212 would like to express our sincere appreciation for the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces. Thank you for serving this great country. Thank you for protecting us. Thank you for the security we have and feel here at home. We know you sacrificed much for your country and all of us. And though you may no longer wear the uniform, we know you're always on call to serve and protect the freedom and security of the United States of America.
