TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –“On this day in 1941, the United States lost thousands of Americans during an attack on America’s naval base in Hawaii. It has been 71 years since the attack, but we have not forgotten the effect it has had on our country. As President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, December 7, 1941 is ‘a date which will live in infamy.'
“I encourage Floridians to pay tribute to our soldiers who protect and defend our country. I am eternally grateful for the sacrifices our Armed Forces make for our freedom.”
