      Hello,

      While most are familiar with the events of 63 years ago on December
      7, 1941, often overlooked are the events of 67 years ago on December
      12, 1937. At approximately 1:38 pm on that date, planes of the
      Japanese naval air service bombed and sank the U.S. Navy gunboat, USS
      Panay, near Nanking, China. The USS Panay was one of the small
      gunboats that patrolled the Yangtze River during the 1920s and 1930s.
      Two sailors and an Italian journalist aboard the USS Panay were
      killed in this "Prelude to Pearl Harbor".

      In rememberance of the men of the U.S. Navy's Yangtze Patrol.
