Disastrous as it was, the attack on the US naval base at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 is now seen as the turning point of World War II. The devastating raid resulted in America entering the war and leading the shattered states of the free world to a victory over Axis tyranny in 1945. The sacrifices of the veterans and the fallen of Pearl Harbor therefore were not made in vain and should never be forgotten.
The World War II Era Studies Institute, the Monmouth County Library and InfoAge invite all to attend the commemoration. The program is free and open to all. Attending the ceremony will enable one to learn about a very important event in history that brought about the world we live in today. Monmouth County remembers.
