75th Anniversary of Attack on Pearl Harbor Commemorated on Mint Stamps

December 7, 1941, was a quiet, sunny morning in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where the U.S. Pacific Fleet was anchored at the naval base.  But that peace was shattered by the sound of approaching aircraft.  The skies were darkened by 353 attacking Japanese planes.  Amidst the chaos, heroes emerged.  Pilots dashed to their planes and took to the skies while others manned anti-aircraft guns.  Fifteen men later received the Medal of Honor for their bravery at Pearl Harbor.  The attack ended after 90 minutes, leaving hundreds of U.S. ships and planes damaged or destroyed.  But the most devastating loss was that of more than 2,000 American lives. The next day, President Roosevelt asked Congress for a Declaration of War against Japan, calling December 7 "a date which will live in infamy."  It took Congress just 33 minutes to declare war.  All of America committed itself to the war effort. Now you can document the 75th anniversary of this momentous event in American history with two mint stamps featuring Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman.  The selvage of this souvenir sheet features a quote by each man.  Order these fitting tributes to Pearl Harbor today.
