Seventy eight years ago, Pearl Harbor was attacked by the nation of Japan, over 2,400 Americans lost their lives. It thrust the United States into World War II. It made our young nation rise up into the fray to confront the evil that threatened to take over the world. 16 million Americans answered the call. They boarded ships to sail across the ocean to meet an uncertain fate but they knew the world needed them. Now as then USDVA rises to meet the needs of our veterans living abroad. We understand the legacy that our greatest generation has left for us. That is why we ask for your help in aiding our veterans. As we remember the lives we lost 78 years ago, Let’s not forget their brothers in arms that are in need today.
