Let’s take a few minutes on Wednesday, December 7, 2011 and honor our Pearl Harbor Survivors with a period of silence and thought as we thank them for serving in the US Military Services that day in Hawaii.
It is the 70th Anniversary of the attack on at least 7 places in the South Pacific; and Hawaii, though shocked, did not fall. Many of these warriors are in the late 80s and early 90s and still remember every minute of the Pearl Harbor attack at approximately 7:55am and that first 24 hours. They will never forget. Let us thank them and offer them kindnesses before they go on to the next life.
Local VFW Posts will likely be holding small special events and you may be able to attend. Some may be televised. VA Offices around the country will likely be doing something in remembrance as well.
World War I did not end all wars as promised. Neither did WWII, nor Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Iraq or Afghanistan. We may hate war, but we support our military men and women and the civilians that go with them. Take a minute or two and thank one of them today if you see him or her.
God Bless the USA and all the world.
