The picture shows a front and back view of this Old Remember Pearl Harbor World War II Stud Lapel Button. This button is not dated but it is believed to be from the 1940s. It is made of lead and painted gold. The button would be worn on a jacket lapel to not forget the horror that was caused by Japan which brought the United States into World War II. It is marked on the front as follows:

REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR

This metal button measures 9/16'' wide. It appears to be in mint condition as pictured.

Below here, for reference, is some additional information on the attack of Pearl Harbor:

Attack on Pearl Harbor
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Attack on Pearl Harbor
Part of the Pacific Theater of World War II
Date: December 7, 1941
Location: Primarily Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Territory, United States
Result: Japanese major tactical victory, United States declaration of war on the Empire of Japan, Germany and Italy declare war on the United States.

Belligerents: United States, Empire of Japan
Commanders and leaders: Husband Kimmel, Walter Short, Chuichi Nagumo, Isoroku Yamamoto

Strength: 8 battleships, 8 cruisers, 30 destroyers, 4 submarines, 1 USCG Cutter, 49 other ships, 390 aircraft

Mobile Unit: 6 aircraft carriers, 2 battleships, 2 heavy cruisers, 1 light cruiser, 9 destroyers, 8 tankers, 23 fleet submarines, 5 midget submarines, 414 aircraft

Casualties and losses: 4 battleships sunk, 3 battleships damaged, 1 battleship grounded, 2 other ships sunk, 3 cruisers damaged, 3 destroyers damaged, 3 other ships damaged, 188 aircraft destroyed, 159 aircraft damaged, 2,402 killed, 1,247 wounded, 4 midget submarines sunk, 1 midget submarine grounded, 29 aircraft destroyed, 64 killed, 1 captured, Civilian casualties: 57 killed, 35 wounded.

The attack on Pearl Harbor (called Hawaii Operation or Operation AI by the Japanese Imperial General Headquarters (Operation Z in planning) and the Battle of Pearl Harbor) was a surprise military strike conducted by the Imperial Japanese Navy against the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on the morning of December 7, 1941 (December 8 in Japan). The attack was intended as a preventive action in order to keep the U.S. Pacific Fleet from interfering with military actions the Empire of Japan was planning in Southeast Asia against overseas territories of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the United States.

The base was attacked by 353 Japanese fighters, bombers and torpedo planes in two waves, launched from six aircraft carriers. All eight U.S. Navy battleships were damaged, with four being sunk. Of these eight damaged, two were raised, and with four repaired, six battleships returned to service later in the war. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, an anti-aircraft training ship, and one minelayer. 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,402 Americans were killed and 1,282 wounded. The power station, shipyard, maintenance, and fuel and torpedo storage facilities, as well as the submarine piers and headquarters building (also home of the intelligence section) were not attacked. Japanese losses were light: 29 aircraft and five midget submarines lost, and 65 servicemen killed or wounded. One Japanese sailor was captured.

The attack came as a profound shock to the American people and led directly to the American entry into World War II in both the Pacific and European theaters. The following day (December 8), the United States declared war on Japan. Domestic support for non interventionism, which had been strong, disappeared. Clandestine support of Britain (for example the Neutrality Patrol) was replaced by active alliance. Subsequent operations by the U.S. prompted Germany and Italy to declare war on the U.S. on December 11, which was reciprocated by the U.S. the same day. There were numerous historical precedents for unannounced military action by Japan. However, the lack of any formal warning, particularly while negotiations were still apparently ongoing, led President Franklin D. Roosevelt to proclaim December 7, 1941, ''a date which will live in infamy''.
