… Americans found out about the attack on Pearl Harbor over an emergency radio broadcast announcement.
Imagine if news was distributed only over the radio today!
On this National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we remember and honor the citizens of the U.S. who were killed in the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7, 1941.
Below are two photos from the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, DC, where there is a stature of a man listening to news on his radio.
Below is a YouTube video (courtesy of Veterans Today) of that Pearl Harbor attack emergency radio broadcast announcement.
