80 Years Ago Today: America Enters World War Two

80 years ago today, the air forces of Imperial Japan attacked the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, precipitating U.S. entry into World War Two. My Tennessee grandfather enlisted in the navy during the war, and was stationed at Quonset, Rhode Island. Later he moved his entire family to the state….and that’s why I am alive to type these words! Isn’t life strange?

At any rate, I thought I would use this momentous benchmark for a little wrap-up of related Travalanche posts. Just click below to read the articles:
