Favorite thing: This is another newer monument on the Texas State Capitol grounds, erected in 1989 by the Pearl Harbor Survivors of Texas.

The Pearl Harbor Monument is placed in honor of the men and women of Texas serving the United States armed forces who were present on the island of Oahu, Territory of Hawaii, on September 7, 1941, when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. This unprovoked attack was the catalyst that pushed the United States into the Second World War.
