Pearl Harbor Anniversary

Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

– President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Join us on our exclusive Pearl Harbor Anniversary Tour, which includes attending the official commemorative ceremony on December 7. This WWII tour will be led by Historian Erik Flint, a veteran of 30 years in uniform, who deployed twice to Iraq as a Combat Historian for the U.S. Special Operations Command History & Research Office and is a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve. With Erik’s expertise and leadership, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of one of the most pivotal events of World War II, while also honoring the sacrifice and heroism of those who served and lost their lives in the attack.
