    Thank you for posting Dayton. I can't really say that I ENJOYED seeing those particular pictures, but it is certainly "a date which will live in infamy" --- and one that we should never forget. I often heard my grandmother tell the story of that day. When my grandad heard that the Japanese had attacked, he fell slap backwards in the straight-backed chair he was sitting in, all the way to the floor. We should all take a moment to remember our brave servicemen who died on that day.

    I was stationed at schofield for three years and got a chance to visit the Arizona Memorial. I got a chance to see the two names of the men that my great aunt was dating. She used to tell me how she would have a date with both of them in the same evening at different times and how one time she almost got caught. Sad but funny at the same time. I dont remember they're names off the top of my head, but one was a LTjg and the other a LTCDR. Big difference in those ranks.

    Thank you Dayton!!

    May God bless all of the souls lost that terrible day... and every soul lost for the Defense of Our Great and free Nation.

    Our country's freedom was not free. There was a GREAT price for that freedom that we should never forget!!!

    Land of the FREE...because of the BRAVE !!!

    God Bless them ALL !!!

    2 dates we should never forget are December 7, 1941 and September 11, 2001!

    No disrespect meant to those who died at Pearl Harbor, but it would be wise to remember that more people died in the attacks on the Twin Towers than in the attacks on Pearl Harbor.
