With a failed car bomb currently in the news and The Pacific
miniseries nearing a conclusion on HBO, this is just a reminder that today is the 65th anniversary of the only people killed by enemy attack in the mainland of America during World War II. The deaths were caused by a Japanese balloon bomb on May 5, 1945.
