One page on this site that is linked from the Dec. 7, 1941 page, but isn't linked on this site elsewhere, gives the Ships Positions & other Details of Pearl Harbor.
A midget submarine was part of the attack on Pearl Harbor and this page has been on the site, but not linked elsewhere. We apologize for any confusion that this may have caused. We hope to add more information to the page, until then you can see a couple of photos and visit a museum ~online~ about the mini-subs.

Attention, Editor! Please add the following link to your links page. So, came a request from student, Meg. Although the link goes to a site that is of a commercial nature and we don't usually do this, we decided to add the page to our links any way. Reason? Toward the bottom of the page is a series of links that are most excellent resources. I don't use other's work on my site, so I believe the perfect answer is to share the page with its links:
Thanks, Mrs. LouAnn Taylor, librarian (some of my favorite people!) for the email alert and Miss Meg for her insistance that the page had great information. I agree and share with thee. Actually, though, the Pearl Harbor attack is glossed up a bit and the motivation of the Japanese may have been more about wanting our oil as they had been embargoed from buying oil and needed it desparately. Motivations are an interesting thing to ponder in the big scheme of history. At the time our ally, China, had been at war with Japan for quite a few years by this time. We had been sending advisors to help. That part is not usually played up in history stories.
The following web link listed was provided by PHSA, Vancouver Chapter President, John H. Bruening. He had links printed on the back of his business card. Bruening served in the U.S. Army 24th Infantry Division. He was on duty as MP (military police) during the time of Pearl Harbor.
