December 7th

So I wonder how many people out there know what significant event happened on December 7th? Probably not as many as there should be and if you don't, shame on you. Most of us know where we were and what we were doing on September 11th, 2001 and will never forget that. I know I won't. My dad is 90 years old and he can vividly tell me exactly where he was and what he was doing on December 7th, 1941. Ok, if you don't know, this was the day the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. This was a life changing event for our forefathers as 9/11 has been for a lot of us.

So today, take a minute and remember those that fought and those that gave their lives so that we could be a free country. Support our troops and most of all Never Forget!!!!

I was standing on the USS Arizona Memorial on Dec 7, 2007, a day I will not easily forget. We met several WWII vets that were "there" on that fateful day. One vet had been discharged from the Navy on Dec 5, 1941 and had visited a friend in the engine room of the Arizona an hour before the attack. His sargent later tore up his discharge papers and he had to stay and fight for another 4 years, but he's forever grateful to have not been on the Arizona at the time of the attack. It was a very memorable time for us last Friday.
