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.
75 Years Ago. Pearl Harbor. If you have relatives who were older than 4 or 5 years old in December 1941, they may well be able to tell you about their and the family’s reaction to learning American soil had been attacked and 2,203 Americans killed and 1,178 injured. There were also 68 civilians of Hawaii also killed in those attacks. #history #PearlHarbor #ancestors #familytree #genealogy
