Sad day. My Mom was 4 years old and living there when this happened, I remember her telling me stories about bomb that landed in Grandma's back yard and my Mom playing on it until guy from base came out and defused it...guess I was lucky that it didn't go BOOM!
 

BULL

Oh NO! Not that guy!

My dad would have been 17 years old at the time. He lived on an Ohio dairy farm with his immigrant parents and three brothers. A kid whose family owned the town’s gas station would stop by every day to get a bucket of milk. One day he announced, “Hey did you hear the Japs bombed Pearl Harbor!” All four brothers enlisted. My dad in the Army Air Force. Different times.

Sad that the usual ceremonies and gatherings have been cancelled.
The survivors are dwindling in numbers rapidly, will not be long until they are all gone :cry:

All of my uncles went in the military during that time (those of age) and I lost one in the Philippines late in the war - that generation supported the country as we all should. I wish I could say we see that kind of enthusiasm for our country today.
Truly a Great generation!!!

I had the privilege of visiting the Arizona Memorial about 40 years ago. Incredibly moving 🇺🇸

Yep. Grew up in the depression. Went to war. Came home and went to work building the nation. Never felt like the government owed them a damn thing. For many, the Army provided three squares. Something they hadn’t been getting.

Been watching specials on Pearl Harbor and Dec 7th. Man, I really don't know what to say.
Every year, we thank those who gave their full measure, those who survived and carried on, all their families, their sacrifices, giving everything for this country's freedom.
There have been many, many, many, men and women who have given their blood and tears for this great nation.
May GOD the Father, and his Blessed son Jesus watch over all them and their families, and over this great nation.

If we could survive that, what cannot we survive?

The Socialist will erase this as soon as they have the right actors in place.

And yes what was sacrificed so many years ago is an incredible accomplishment since you had ONE Nation and not a divided nation of today. I am sure all who perished would be lost in todays USA being the Corruption to the MAX MEDIA machine. RIP and thank you for caring about the greatest country in our lifetime.

You got me. I am lost.
Did I plagiarize someone else's quote?
I thought I was using my own words.
