Never Forget; Always Honor

There are those who remember and those who have been told about it. None should ever forget.

This is a day to remember what happened at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and to honor those men who lost their lives, and to honor those who survived.

I shall not forget...ever.

My Dad was a flight instructor in King City when this happened. He wanted to go fight so badly, but the military kept their best people as instructors(smart idea)
He actually was nursing a hangover in a hotel in San Francisco on a weekend pass!
He was so mad, he would have gone and fought the Japanese immediately! As it was, he ended up in England flying bomber runs on German held areas and industries. Then flew as a fighter pilot until the end of the war.
I have a Pearl Harbor vet living in my neighborhood, he's almost a vanished treasure!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

My late Uncle Bill was an Army Air Corps mechanic stationed at Hickim Field on Dec.7th. He was wounded in the knee, which had the unfortunate result of ending the hope he'd had of becoming a pilot. After recuperating, he later served in Europe as a combat engineer and was wounded again in late December '44. I remebr as a kid he would joke about how much he hated December. Thank you Donal for posting this. It is ever more relevant today in light of Sept.11th. 2001. Someday I pray and hope that America, having twice been brutally attacked, when we were at peace with the world, will truly learn someday that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance. Thank you Uncle Bill, thank you all of you guys and gals. God Bless America. J'Mac.
