Today, Americans recognize the attack on Pearl Harbor as one of the defining moments in American history, a moment that changed the course of history. America was thrust into World War II, and joined the battle against the Axis powers on two fronts.
Fighting in Europe and the Pacific, Americans from all walks of life served their country with honor and determination, ultimately securing victory and ensuring freedom for people around the world.
To honor those who served and sacrificed during World War II, the Armed Forces Commemorative Society and America Remembers present the Pearl Harbor Tribute .45 Pistol.
On the slide’s left side, you will find a depiction of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor along with President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s famous line from his speech announcing the attack. To the left, a U.S. Navy ship is rocked by explosions from the attack. In the center, American gunners turn their weapons skyward in a futile attempt to turn the tide of battle, while behind them a sister ship burns. At right, Japanese dive-bombers scream down from the sky, bearing the torpedoes intended for the Navy ships below.
Right side of the slide features a depiction of the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial, America’s most moving and inspirational tribute to all those who served and sacrificed. Millions of people from around the world pay their respects at the Memorial, which is erected over the sunken hull of the great battleship, final resting place for many of the 1,177 brave crewmen who lost their lives. To the right is the Arizona as she appeared before the attack, a floating fortress and proud member of the American fleet. To the left, a battleship on patrol, represents the power of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. Flanking this battleship, you will find President Roosevelt’s prophetic vow that “with the unbounding determination of our people we will gain the inevitable victory.”
Craftsmen specifically commissioned by America Remembers decorate each Tribute.
