Some very high-ranking administration people have been saying that the US did not retalilate for Pearl Harbor until four months after the attack.  I picture Adm. Halsey being ordered to do nothing for four months. :confused:  Yeah, right.  Anyway, here are the carrier attacks carried out between Pearl Harbor and the Battle of the Coral Sea:

Wake Island Raid, January '42
Vice Admiral W. Halsey
CV Enterprise

Marshalls Raid, February 1, '42
Vice Admiral W. Halsey
CV Enterprise, CV Yorktown

Rabaul Raid, February 20, '42
Vice Admiral W. Brown
CV Lexington

Wake Island Raid, February 24, '42
Vice Admiral W. Halsey
CV Enterprise

Marcus Island Raid, March 4, '42
Vice Admiral W. Halsey
CV Enterprise

Lae-Salamaua Raid, March 10, '42
Vice Admiral W. Brown
CV Lexington, CV Yorktown

Unrestricted submarine warfare was also ordered on Dec. 7th.

Larry,

Don't forget that the Asiatic Fleet and Army in PI were very much engaged in fighting from the beginning also. There were a number of engagements that began as soon as the Japanese attacked.

I suppose those who make comments like you allude to are thinking only of major fleet engagements, such as Coral Sea or Midway.
