Pearl Harbor
Good post. Even though a plethora of sites are around about Pearl Harbor and that fateful day, it is still interesting to read about it all, to see the pics, to feel the pain in an abstract way. Thanks!

Pearl Harbor
Thank you for posting this. We need to remember history. There will always be someone out there (as we too well know since Sep. 11 2001) who wants to destroy us.

Precisely why we need to maintain the best trained and best equipped military in the world. This is Job One of the Federal Government (according to the Constitution of the United States, "to provide for the common defense".

We cannot forget either Pearl Harbor, OR Sept. 11, 2001.

Special thanks to all those who have served, are serving or have loved ones who have served or are serving,

First thing this morning my father-in-law asked if I remember what today is. He wasn't there at the time of the attack but less than two years later he was serving at Pearl Harbor as a hospital corpsman. He may not have seen action, but he cared for the wounded and the dead when they returned. His body is weak, but his mind is still sharp.

Sadly, the news I watched/listened to today treated it as an afterthought. News about Tiger Woods was more important.

What a sad commentary on our society.

Agreed.

I was so shocked to see no mention of it whatsoever. None of my professors at school. No students. No TV stations....not even Yahoo!.com or Google had anything.

Bing.com had a great memorial on their site.
