While President Roosevelt was correct in stating that the tragic events on this day 77 years ago would “live in infamy,” the Greatest Generation’s subsequent sacrifices will always be remembered for saving the world from tyranny.

We will always owe a debt of gratitude to these extraordinary patriots and their families.
