PEARL HARBOR December 7th, 1941

The attack on Pearl Harbor began at 7:48 a.m on Sunday December 7, 1941, 2,345 military and 57 civilians killed, 1,247 military and 35 civilians wounded, "A Day that shall live in Infamy"

Let us never forget those who have stood the “Final Watch" and made the “Final Voyage” under “Fair Winds and Following Seas”.

Someday, we too shall pass on to the "Supreme Commander" of us all, and when that day comes, we pray that there will be someone who will remember us as we have remembered those who have gone before us.

Yes, Remember Pearl Harbor. I can still remember mama's flag with two stars showing her sons responded to the call. She tried to explain Pearl Harbor to me. It finally hit home when we stood on the Arizona Memorial. I will ALWAYS REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR.
God bless the vet! Thanks Woodie. Hope the service goes well this Morning.

Thanks for the reminder. God bless the vets and God bless you and your Honey as she goes to and from the Doctors offices in all that snow and bad weather. Thursday I go to a distant city and take my MRI's to let the doc have a look who did my back surgery two months ago today. I am thinking more surgery going by the pain and a little above where my spinal fusion was done years ago. It's supposed to be rainy that day looking at the long range forcast. Helen
