December 7,1941, is a date that will live in infamy.”
As we note the 79th anniversary of the bombing, how many people still think about Pearl Harbor?
Not many I know. I have heard the comment that it was so long ago.
I will always remember Pearl Harbor, and our daughter’s will be taught about Pearl Harbor.
They will be taught to honor the memory of the people who lost their lives there and in the war.
Both attacks were made by fanatical cowards.
Just as then, we are now in a fight for freedom.
Like then, the fanatics must be wiped out by whatever means are necessary.
Let’s take a look back at the attack at Pearl Harbor.
The Japanese lost approximately 65 airplanes, five midget submarines, and one large submarine.
For The United States the losses were as follows:
188 airplanes destroyed.
Eight battleships were badly damaged or destroyed, including the USS Arizona.
There were a total of 2,403 military and civilian deaths.
When the USS Arizona sank, it killed 1,170 crew members, including 37 sets of brothers.
We must always remember Pearl Harbor and honor everyone who served in World War II.
We must also honor all of those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
My Uncle P.F.C. Frank Walters was one of the many Americans that died for our freedom
Our daughters will know about Pearl Harbor and honoring our veterans.
The U.S.S.Arizona still sheds oil stained tears for her lost crew members and the dead of December 7,1941
