    In memory of all those who lost their lives to the sneak attack by the Empire of Japan 68 years ago today.

    And in memory of all of our servicemen who took up the battle thereafter to help preserve our freedoms and our way of life.

    Wow. Even in a thread dedicated to heroic U.S. Servicemen, you find it necessary to politicize things.

    Interesting pictures and Sequence of Events of that weekend and into the next week.

    December 7, 1941 - Japanese Bomb Pearl Harbor

    My Father was in the Air Force and rode in the turrets underneath the planes. I remember having him over for dinner one evening and watching the movie Memphis Bell. He had so much to talk about seeing all of those planes.

    If he's still around, convey our thanks to him. This thread is about him and all the other people very much like him.

    If he's no longer around, I trust that you are proud of him. Accept the memorial in his honor, please. Let this thread be just another candle lit in his memory, with our thanks.

    And thank you for "getting" it.

    He's gone now, 85 when he died. I am and was always proud of him. Thanks. :)

    There's a smiley there but I cried when I posted the memory.
