Yes, Bob, my mother was born on December 6th, so is a reminder for me that Pearl Harbor was attacked the next day. I recommend that anyone who goes there to visit, honor and pray for those that still remain beneath the water's surface. We went and it was such a reverent experience. God bless our military heroes!

Thank you for the reminder.  One of my best friend's dad served in Pearl Harbor on that fateful day.  I do thank God for him and everyone else that defend our country.  It is unfathomable what those men went through.

Yes, I do know. Apparently I had a great uncle who was killed there. I don't know any details. After the bombing my grandfather and his other brother were sent there. Thankful for our men and women who have and do defend the US.

Morning Bob, yes although I was not yet on the planet then. However, I know the stories from family and friends whose paths crossed mine including survivors of the Bataan march and interned Japanese Americans. Thank you for this reminder. This story should not be forgotten.

Yes, I did. A very critical day in the history of our nation. I'm of a generation where we learned about Pearl Harbor in school... I have a feeling kids today don't get the same lessons I did. Then again, I did start going to school less than 10 years after WWII ended.

Every once in a while, at random and spontaneously, I reflect upon this country, its concepts and what it took to produce this extraordinary result. Sacrifice by men and women, their blood spilt, love, life and dreams lost so others can have theirs. We are those others. It is well to receive their gift, preserve it and then return it so others can partake too. Share & care

My Dad was a tail gunner in s B-24 Liberator, in the Atlantic theatre. Visited the Pearl Harbor USS Arizona exhibit on a family vacation and very solemn time, no one talks and it hits a person deep inside seeing 2018, 2019 internment dates etched in the marble. The enlisted men and officers that survived the group of 2400 that died, 1200 wounded on duty that Sunday morning. Brought back back when they did die stateside to be interned with their fellow service members in a watery grave. Dad was 2nd row, on left glad to be back from another 6 hour mission safe and sound.

Hi Bob- I do remember the significance of this day. My father was in the Army Air Corps and my uncle was in the Army, both in Europe. During the war, my my mother said they had to carry cards stating that they were Chinese and not Japanese.

Pearl Harbor Day has lost it's luster with 911 taking over the historic dominance.  We, older Americans, still think about the sacrifice those WWII Veterans made to keep us free.
