I feel that connection to everyone who has been in the Navy. That includes the men and women who died 72 years ago in the attack on Pearl Harbor.
I've mentioned it before, but I was stationed at Pearl Harbor from 1991-1994. It's one of those places where time marches on, but you can sense the history of the place. I'm glad I was in the Navy and felt honored to serve at Pearl Harbor and carry on in the place of those people who died so many years ago.
