I now teach Junior ROTC. This is the first year that none of my cadets was even born when the September 11th attacks occurred. It's harder to teach the significance of the date to them because it seems so far away to them.
I don't know 12-7-41 was a dozen years before I hit the ground, but I grew up learning the significance of Pearl Harbor and WW2. They were still fighting the war on TV and the movies all through the 1950s and 1960s.

I still have never owned a Japanese car. The name "Mitsubishi" still prickles me.
