Congresswoman Mazie K. Hirono (D-Hawaii) today released the following statement in honor of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day:
"On this 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, let us remember the Americans who lost their lives, while honoring the survivors of that fateful day who are still with us. Their courage and heroism were an inspiration to our nation then and remain so today.
"This greatest generation was dedicated to protecting our freedoms and our way of life. When they came home they showed how one person can make a difference. The best way to pay tribute to their sacrifice is to reaffirm our own commitment to making lives better for those in our community and keeping our country strong."
