Pearl Harbor Day

Today is the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.  Still, there were several hundred veterans of the event who were able to make the trip and commemorate the event with each other.

I honor these men, not as much for what happened to them as what they did with their lives subsequent to the event.  I've only met a couple of Pearl Harbor veterans in my life.  If you haven't met any, you'd better get busy, because they are getting fewer and further between.  (Aside: I've also met a Bataan Death-March survivor...even more rare these days.)

God bless 'em all!
