This is in memory of and to honor the 2,400 Americans, including two with ties to Crittenden County, who died in the surprise attack by the Japanese on the U.S. Fleet’s Pearl Harbor base in the early-morning hours of Dec. 7, 1941. President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared Dec. 7, 1941, “a date which will live in infamy” and signed the Declaration of War against Japan the following day, Dec. 8, 74 years ago.
Gov. Beshear encourages individuals, businesses, organizations and government agencies to join in this tribute.
The governor will leave office Tuesday after two terms.
