With all the shit going on, it's a bit lost in the shuffle.
I've been to the USS Arizona memorial....very sobering. The greatest generation and we've let them down so bad
One of the interesting side notes is that it is thought that Yamamoto never really said his "sleeping giant" quote, but it was a combination of the following actual quotes made by him:
The History channel and H2 are currently showing the best documentary coverage of the entire Pearl Harbor history that I've ever seen or heard about. I'm 81 years old. I was visiting my grandparents when this happened and I remember my uncles stringing a new wire antenna outside for the old mid 30's model RCA battery powered radio on which we listened to Roosevelt's declaration of war speech. Those were the "Old Days." The "Good Old Days" were yesterday and the day before.
My wife and I visited the memorial in the late 1990's when we took a Hawaiian vacation and visited three islands. I was amazed at how many Japanese people were there and how unusually quiet everyone was. You could hear a pin drop.
Stationed in Pearl for 4 years, \
Saw a lot of the monument.
Thanks for your service. The young man who married my oldest granddaughter served in Iraq two tours, was stationed in Germany for three years and now he's stationed at Camp Humphreys in Korea flying Chinooks along the demilitarized zone. He received his pilot's training at Ft. Rucker, Alabama.
Let the Pearl Harbor and 9/11 drama finally just die. Focus instead on the present and the vast future ahead of us.
What if Barrack Hussein Obama had been President on December 7' 1941?
