Remembering Pearl Harbor. Interesting historical footnote: the USS Phoenix (CL-46) was at Pearl that day and escaped the attack unscathed. She was eventually sold to Argentina and renamed the ARA General Belgrano. After almost 3 decades of service with Argentina, she was sunk on 2 May 1982 by the British submarine HMS Conqueror during the Falklands War. Conqueror is the only nuclear-powered submarine to ever engage an enemy vessel in actual combat.
<b>To commemorate the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, here are some stunning images of the event that brought the United States into World War II.</b> And allow us to use the occasion to thank our veterans for their service and sacrifice.
