President Biden Honors 80th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor Attack

In his message, he honored “the Greatest Generation” for their service to the country.

On Tuesday, President Biden visited the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. to mark the 80th anniversary of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. The attack drew the United States into WWII and resulted in the deaths of 2,403 people. The president also made a special memorial for the late Senator Bob Dole and Donald Jacobs, First Lady Jill Biden’s father, both of whom served in the war.

President Biden recognized the importance of those who fought the nation’s battles, giving “thanks to the Greatest Generation, who guided our Nation through some of our darkest moments and laid the foundations of an international system that has transformed former adversaries into allies.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God to use the legacy of those who served in World War II to shape the future according to His will. 
  • That President Biden would seek God’s wisdom as he carries out the role of the commander in chief of our armed forces. 
  • That God would use all who inhabit the White House to bring and maintain peace for the nation.
