The video above is from last year.
The Coast Guard Compass has a post in its Long Blue Line Series looking at the Coast Guard’s role in the events around Hawaii on December 7, 1941 and outlining Coast Guard activities leading up to and during World War II. The video above is from last year.
I looked back on previous posts on this topic, but unfortunately as a result of the Coast Guard’s migration of it’s on-line representation to new servers, it seems we have lost access to much of the historical material that was previously available, most notably the Coast Guard history Pearl Harbor index, as a result my previous posts which largely referred to this historical material now connect only to a singularly unhelpful page at Defense Media Activities.
For what it is worth, here are some previous commemorative post marking this day:
- Remembering Pearl Harbor, December 7, 2010
- 70 Years Ago Today–Pearl Harbor, December 7, 2011
- Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941, December 7, 2012
- A Day That Will LIve in Infamy–Pearl Harbor, 73 Years Ago, December 7, 2014
- Pearl Harbor: A Catalyst That Forever Changed Coast Guard Search and Rescue–Coast Guard Compass
Hopefully I will address the Coast Guard’s Social media efforts relatively soon.
