Pearl Harbor Day is usually a time of remembrance for Americans. On December 7th, 1941, thousands of Americans died in a sneak attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor Navy base in Hawaii. An attack that thrust the U.S. into World War II.

It was the bloodiest foreign attack on U.S. soil in the modern war era, until the September 11th attacks in 2001.

Here are the options for Malia Obama and her sister, Sasha on the "Day that will live in Infamy:"

December 7, 2011


Asian Mushroom Soup
Oriental Noodle Salad
Classic Spinach Salad
Teriyaki Marinated Chicken Strips
Szechuan Tofu & Veggies
Garlic Roasted Edamame
Vegetable Fried Rice
Fortune Cookies

What do you think about the menu? Insensitive, or is it just time to move on? Weigh in on our Facebook page.
