Remembering Pearl--Random IPhone Post #1

I know I said I wouldn't be posting until Thursday, but I couldn't neglect to mention the 69th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

I had the honor of being stationed at the Navy base at Pearl for three years in the early '90s. I was always touched by the survivors of the attack, who would return each year to remember friends and brothers lost so many years ago. Their dedication and service made me proud to be a sailor and it still does.

Time takes it's terrible toll on the remaining survivors as fewer and fewer live to see another anniversary each year.

Take a minute today to think about that day and the changes it brought to our country. (No offense Canuck).


  1. I'm right there with ya pal...

    a huge thanks from this guy to all who serve/served.

  2. Every day is a good day to stop and remember those in harm's way. Every Veteran I see gets a "Thank you for your service" from me.
