When Was Pearl Harbor

Dec. 7, 1941, 22-yr-old Cornelia Fort became the 1st American woman pilot in a combat zone while flying over Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked. While 2 other civilian planes were shot out of the sky, she made it thru' the strafing & landed her plane. She was among the first pilots recruited for the Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron. In March 1943, she was killed by a midair collision while on a ferrying mission to Dallas.

Pearl Harbor Memorial ~ Oahu, Hawaii 1177 young men who were 19-20 years old lost their lives, when the ship the "Arizona" was sunk, during the bombing of Pearl Harbor. 1102 of them still lie in their watery grave in the sunken ship. Very emotional and sobering to see.

FAKE: Women firefighters douse flames during the Pearl Harbor attack. FACT: The picture was mislabeled (maybe to make it more dramatic) even in the original Time Magazine piece. But MSNBC's Bill Dedman found out two years ago that the photo, which was supposed to have been taken on Dec. 7, 1941, was actually shot during a training exercise.

One of my favorite movies ever. I thought it was a great story. The ending wasn't the greatest because I wanted Danny to be with the girl but when they named the baby Danny, it made me feel a little bit better.
