Today, we remember and honor all those who lost their lives during the Dec. 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.

#PearlHarborRemembranceDay

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day allows service members, veterans, and the nation an opportunity to honor the sacrifices made by those who were present at the Dec. 7, 1941 attack.

Called “a date which will live in infamy,” in President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s historic speech, the attack on Pearl Harbor propelled the United States into World War II. More than 2,400 Americans were killed and 1,100 more wounded. Twenty-one ships of the Pacific Fleet were sunk or damaged, including the USS Arizona.

The USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor National Memorial is a moving reminder of the service and sacrifice of those who lost their lives 80 years ago today.

Since the attacks on Pearl Harbor, the U.S. and Japan have endured more than 70 years of continued peace. #PearlHarbor80

To all of our veterans today and every day, thank you for your service and sacrifice. 🇺🇸

Happy #VeteransDay!

On this #VeteransDay, please join us in expressing gratitude to our nation’s veterans! Thank you for everything you’ve done and continue to do for our country.

Did you know...About one out of every five current employees in BLM is a veteran. We benefit immeasurably from their experience and work ethic.

In fiscal year 2020, we hired more than 400 veterans. Through programs like Team Rubicon, Operation Warfighter, Coming Home to Work and other internship opportunities, the BLM offers veterans a chance to gain work experience and job skills, build their resumes, explore new professional interests, and otherwise prepare for the future. We remain committed to hiring veterans, many of whom continue to serve in Reserve or National Guard units across the country.

Today is a fee-free day, so we hope you can get outdoors and enjoy some fresh air on your public lands.

Tomorrow is the start of #BatWeek!

Did you know…Bats are one of Mother Nature’s biggest helpers. Bats are important to environmental health and the U.S. economy. They help keep bug populations in check by often consuming their body weight in insects every night. They are also pollinators to many of your favorite plants. Over 300 species of fruit depend on bats for pollination. The Bureau of Land Management works collaboratively with partners to conduct research, monitor bat populations, protect roosting habitat and manage #yourpubliclands with bats in mind.

Tomorrow also begins our 2021 #BatBeautyContest when you will have the chance to vote for 2021's cutest bat! Stay tuned to our page for more details tomorrow.
