Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day with Card Lock

The USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor, Oahu, Hawaii for Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

On a quiet Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, the American Army and Navy base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was attacked by the Imperial Japanese Navy.  It was unexpected, and caught the American Army and Navy off guard. The surprise attack led to the loss of more than 2000 American citizens and over 1000 injuries.

The day after the attack, the United States declared war on Japan. In President Franklin Roosevelt’s well-known speech to congress, he declares that the bombing of Pearl Harbor will be “a date which will live in infamy”.

 Each year on Dec. 7, Pearl Harbor survivors, veterans, and visitors from all over the world come together to honor those killed.  Card Lock Company will be flying our flag at half-mast to honor and remember the service members and civilians who lost their lives. We’re committed to celebrating and honoring our nation’s heroes today and every day for the freedoms they have fought hard to win.

At Card Lock, our commitment to honoring and supporting those who served and sacrificed for our country runs deep. Founded in the 1940s by veterans to provide security solutions for veteran-focused fraternal organizations and clubs, making a positive impact in veterans’ lives has been in Card Lock’s DNA for over 70 years. Today, many eligible veterans never apply for the benefits and compensation they are entitled to—which is why we encourage all veterans to visit Veterans Guide, a comprehensive online resource to help you obtain all of the benefits you are owed for your service.
