Sixty years after Pearl Harbor, history continues to to honor the brave men and women who stepped forward to defend their homes, families, and beliefs against the hatred, intolerance, and jingoism that threatened to rob the world of its humanity.

Those who survived carry the physical and emotional scars as daily reminders of the price of freedom.
