This Month in Marine Corps History

Tomorrow is the anniversary of one of the most significant attacks to ever occur on American soil. 

On December 7, 1941, Japanese forces launched a surprise attack on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor near Honolulu, Hawaii. The attack began just before 8:00 am local time, and in the two hours it lasted, nearly 20 American ships and more than 300 aircraft were destroyed. 2,000 American troops died in the attack and a further 1,000 were wounded. The following day, the United States declared war on Japan, marking its official entry into World War II. For the next three-plus years, American soldiers, sailors, and Marines battled Japanese forces across the Pacific, until Japan surrendered in August of 1945.

The Soldiers and Sailors Act

If your Marine is active duty OR reserve component service member called to active duty, he/she is protected by a law that can save him/her some legal problems and possibly some money as well. Under the provisions of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act of 1940 he/she may be entitled to help.
