A Date Which Will Live In Infamy

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

This is the 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack on the US fleet at Pearl Harbor. This year is a landmark anniversary, but generally, we no longer even hold ceremonies commemorating that day.  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, along with the hundreds more who were wounded during the attack.

    75 years ago and yet to those that fought and survived that day and are still living it seems like only yesterday. And though they are old many of the men they see in their memories will always be young.

    God bless you one and all.

    Our ‘Greatest Generation’. Men and Women of that era are something to look up to and emulate. Tough times and tougher people. I hope there will be more like them in our future.

      “I hope there will be more like them in our future.” They are here…look around…they have always been among us…they wear the uniform.

        Baldwin nailed it. A good friend just retired after a 20 year army career, and 9 combat deployments as a Ranger. I’m proud just typing that, and it wasn’t me. Love and great respect for any and all who have worn the uniform, regardless of age.

    Regardless as to the facts leading up to the event of Pearl Harbor and however frustrating they may be, those servicemembers were still our brothers in arms and died in service to our country. They should always be remembered and never forgotten, and those responsible (both internal and external) should never be forgiven.
