A Date Which Will Live In Infamy

President Roosevelt called December 7th, 1941, “A date which will live in infamy.”

This is the 74th anniversary of the Japanese attack on the US fleet at Pearl Harbor. We no longer even hold ceremonies commemorating that day but as our greatest generation passes on, let us honor their sacrifices to keep America free.

I’d also like to take a moment of silence for the 2402 Americans who were lost on that day and the hundreds more who were wounded in service to this great Nation.

    Fuckin’ Jap’s tried to kill my Father on the Aleutian Islands in WWII. He was awarded the Purple Heart. Which he always told us kids he got for cutting his fingers on KP Duty pealing potatoes. Never found out the actual reason why he was awarded the metal. He died in 1995. RIP Dad. This day will live on in Infanny

    My great uncle was born in China, immigrated to America legally then enlisted in the US Army and fought against the Japs in the Pacific. He brought his wife, my great aunt to the US after the war since he was an American Soldier. He sadly died in the 60s, way before I was born and she died over a year ago. At the funeral during the eulogy I learned all this about my great uncle. It would have been an honor to have met him, as he got to fight the Jap savages and survived.
    The rest of my grandparents lived under Jap occupation during the war as they lived in Guangdong province. Learning about Jap savagery growing up and the fact I had family members that lived through it, I despise them. It doesn’t help that they continue to whitewash their history books and try to deny their crimes.
    I am proud of my Chinese heritage, my uncle, and all the Allies that worked together to defeat the evil Imperial Japs who IMO were worse than the Nazis. I hope my uncle, wherever he is, is proud of my service as a Marine.

    Yes, we remember how we beat the Japanese after the mass murder at Pearl Harbor. We imported thousands of Japanese all over the country and took away Americans guns to prevent Tojo from winning. Wait, no, that’s how our current president wants to beat ISIS. What we did is we killed the fuckers.

    Back when we called an act of war just that…not “workplace violence” followed by efforts to talk nice with people who just want to kill us.

    Hate begets more hate, gents.

      Considering that the Japanese did their level best to earn every bit of the hate that was directed at them almost without exception, I don’t feel that this comment is really relevant. I would refer you to any of the number of the documented instances of horrific acts that they committed. Start with the Rape of Nanking and work down from there. They earned what happened to them.

      The Bataan Death March is all I want to say about the Japs in WW II.

    I had an uncle that was in the U.S. Navy that went MIA in the Pacific during WW2.

    Times have changed though…I was at Red Flag Alaska several years ago and the German Air Force and Japanese Army were there for the exercise…I couldn’t help but think of the irony at the group photo at the end of the exercise.

    My grandfather and his brother were there on dec 7. My grandpa would tell us stories about it. I never understood until I got the opportunity to go to Pearl Harbor! Then during my deployment to Afghanistan, I was able to be on the deployment story along with both of them.
