Did you know that each member of the National Guard is sworn to uphold two constitutions: federal and state? Or that the term "national guard" was popularized by Marquis de Lafayette to describe each state's militia. Or that National Guard soldiers have fought in every single war since its founding.
Happy 384st birthday to the The National Guard.

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

On this day in 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy led a surprise attack on the U.S. Naval Station Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Four U.S. Navy battleships were sunk, and nearly 20 ships plus hundreds of aircraft were crippled. 2,403 Americans - both military personnel and civilians - were killed. The tragedy marked a pivotal point in American history, as it spurred the U.S. to enter World War II. In memory of the lives lost, Congress declared December 7 as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

This year marks the 79th anniversary of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. Though almost eight decades have passed, the lives of the fallen, as well as those who served in WWII, will never be forgotten. We remember and honor them for their courage and the sacrifices they made to protect this country.

This was to be private, but access to them on a personal level was not possible. Therefore, I have to use a post. Can you give me any reason why I should again pay my annual dues other than to receive the monthly magazine or newsletter? I have NEVER been personally contacted by phone, a visit or local letter for any activity, to meet me or know me. I am a USN veteran of the Korean War and an occasional visit would be so nice as well as surprising. I am a charter member of WIMSA, belong to MWAN as well as The Advisory Panel of US Military Women, also the Eagles (MAL) and hear more from them them. Nancy Young ID# 204084693.
