    Let's just take a few minutes to remember the events that took place on this day, sixty-eight years ago.

    My dad was a WWII veteran. He was in the Pacific Theatre. Australia, Borneo, New Guinea, and the Phillipines. I still have some of his campaign medals and ribbons. Some of my most treasured possesions.

    Just looked at three local news stations -- no mention of what happened today :( Just articles about cold weather and an injured basketball "star"



    Well, those who lost their lives today are more important to me...

    It saddens me to think that I've heard NOTHING about pearl harbor day in the media this year.

    My wife and I were talking about this last night she kept asking why this day is not celebrated like it should. All I can think of is people don't care any more. I have had a chance to visit the Arizona Memorial a few times I can never get over the tragedy and bravery that happened that day.

    Just goes to show the best days of this country are behind us. The sheeple now, at least the bulk of them, are too dumb, dont care, wernt taught, or out and out hate the country. We wont even put the 9/11 masterminds through a Military Tribunal. What makes you think this country can remember Pearl Harbor? No, this county is finished. Flush it.

    My Dad was a WWII Navy Man...worked the cable that hooked planes during landings on an aircraft carrier...out in the Pacific.
    Great memories of his stories...He's gone now...but thanks for the reminder...2009 - 1941 = 68 years ago...that would make him about 86-90 years old if he was still here...wow...still miss talkin to him.
    My heart and respect...go out to all that have served...Thank you!
