    I will be taking my son to a birthday party at the house he will be living at in January.

    My uncle was at Pearl Harbor. He says they knew it was gonna happen. They had them open the hatches on all the ships the night before so that the ships would sink easily and be easier to recover and use in the war. They never did that before or since, at least according to him.

    Thankfully my uncle survived and is still around today, with his 5th wife (he divorced one and buried 3) and in his 90's.

    Happy birthday Andrew's son.

    Man, that's a coincidence. My son's name is Andrew, and I'm taking him to a BD party on Sun too.

    Personally, I plan to do more research on why we let it happen in memory of those who died needlessly.

    Beyond the fact that we knew the Japaneses were about to attack Pearl Harbor and we let it happen so we could enter the war, I'd like to know what drives such insanity.

    Are you suggesting that's why we let it happen?
