    These are very interesting medals.

    They were manufactured before the US imposed controls on the critical war metals copper and nickel.

    I can add that the USS Utah is/was still at Pearl, (when I was there) it is one of the two ships that were sunk on the North West side of Ford Island. Map mentions it never sailed again but does not show its location.

    Always thought this magazine was interesting. All it talks about is the War and this was from Dec 22, so a ton about Pearl Harbor as well.

    Cool stuff everyone! We'll always remember those whose lives were lost on that "day of infamy", as well as the many other infamous days in the late 30s-mid 40s.
    I was fortunate enough to visit Pearl 3 years ago, and the medal I bought there is a treasured piece of my collection.

    76 years ago today FDR made his "day of infamy" speech and signed the declaration of war on Japan.
