Pearl Harbor — 72 years later

God bless the veterans of the Pearl Harbor attack and those who were killed on that day 72 years ago today, as well as all those whose subsequent sacrifices led America to ultimate victory.

Here are some tweets I ran across this morning about the attack and the anniversary:

The declaration of war:

Japan’s Commander-in-Chief of the Combined Fleet Isoroku Yamamoto knew the attack was a mistake:

Search engine remembrances: Google vs. Bing.

Lastly, I’d be remiss if I didn’t include this that a lot of people are talking about…

Dan Riehl’s been reminding anybody who’s been questioning that about Campbell’s long history of pro-American marketing themes. It it different? Sure. Offensive or dismissive in any way? I don’t think so. At least they remembered, and maybe that’ll get the attention of some kids who might otherwise not be talking about this in school.

How many companies either aren’t aware of the Pearl Harbor anniversary or won’t care enough to mention it at all?

Update: They deleted the tweet, but I didn’t think that was necessary (screen shots at the link above).
