Baucus Statement on Pearl Harbor Attack 70th Anniversary


Montana’s senior U.S. Senator Max Baucus released the following statement today on the 70th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.  Baucus is the son of a World War II veteran.

“This somber anniversary calls us to honor the great service and sacrifice of our country’s greatest generation. Nearly one year ago, we lost a very special Montanan – Pearl Harbor survivor and Navy veteran Ed Chlapowski. I salute Ed along with all of our veterans who have shared their stories to make sure those who were killed will not be forgotten.


As we remember the 2,402 Americans who were killed on this day in 1941, may we also recall the unity and outpouring of teamwork that embraced the nation that infamous day. On this anniversary, may we be reminded of the duty we all share in making sure our veterans get the care, thanks and support they have earned.”



Baucus and Senator Jon Tester have introduced legislation to honor the First Special Service Force, which was created during WWII and based at Fort Harrison in Helena, with the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest honor Congress can bestow.
