Pearl Harbor 12-7-1941

The 70 year anniversary of Pearl Harbor is today. I know there are not many left that served from this major day in our history but I wanted to say Thank You to all that did and to say I will never forget.

For all currently serving and all that have I also want to say Thank You. I personally appreciate all that you do and the sacrifices you make.

Thanks for the post Darth. My dad served in the Pacific Theater during WWII. Got the Bronze star and two purple hearts. Gave his left arm for our country. I'm proud of my dad. He'd be 86 this Sunday.

That one in the long history of the human race day changed the world and our country forever. Maybe more than any other. God bless the USA and thank you to all who've servered or are serving her.

I had the honor this year of taking down the flag on the USS Arizona memorial and keeping it, I'm waiting for a case to be made for it

Take care,

Your dad sounds like a true hero. Over here on norfolk naval base weve been waiting for this for a while. Today in the memory of those who lost there lives then I wore my dress blues to salute them and wore them proudly all day long as did many other sailors here. Hooyah to the U.S. Navy.

Thank you. That was a nice post. I spent a year near the Cambodian border in the central highlands of Vietnam. Returning home I was treated like "dirt" at the San Francisco airport (no reflection on San Fran, it happened throughout the country). Times have changed and I am so very proud of how our returning veterans are treated now. So if you see a young serviceman or woman in an airport, give them the respect that they have earned and deserve, thanks.
On a lighter note we picked up our Sport S yesterday and it's great!!

Thank you for enduring all that BS. My dad is still scared from his San Fran experience when he came home from Vietnam. Everytime I see a Vietnam Vet I make the time to thank them. My homecoming was amazing 400-600 people at a small airport in Maine at 345am. It wasn't even our final destination, just first stop in the US. They were made up of regular people and older Vets. I was moved, and made a vow that day to thank the Vietnam Vets that didnt get what I got.

I know I'm late to the party but Pearl Harbor was the start of a country shaping event for us. I am thankful for all our heros that served in WWII, what a bloody terrible war. I cannot imagine what the Vietnam and prior war Vets endured......

I know I missed the day, but its easy to loose track of time here.

So from one proud wounded vetern, I say THANK YOU to all that came before me, for the great country that y'all built, and I helped to defend.

a guy, from warwick ny, i worked with after i retired from the navy, got blown off the deck of the oaklahoma at pearl harbor, was on the Hornet)?) when that was sunk. and then sunk again on the adams. rarely spoke of pearl harbor, and very few details. stayed with him the rest of his life. all i can say is "HEROES ALL" and this is why they are known as the "greatest generation".
he was a great guy, passed a few years ago. always joked with him, i wouldn't go out on a rowboat with him, forget a ship.

I think its actually down to about 150 survivors left ( I could be wrong though).

I'm stationed at Pearl Harbor right now. I'm a civilian but I see the Mighty Mo and Arizona daily, which serve as a good reminder of who we need to thank for us being here today. Thanks to all our service members, especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our Country.

May we all remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our wonderful country! I really really hope that the youth of tomorrow can appreciate the sacrifice of so many souls who have given their lives in the name of Freedom!! I would have loved to meet our founding fathers and been able to rub elbows with Individuals who could really appreciate what freedom meant!! Thanks to all who have served!! GOD BLESS!!

This is a great thread, thanks for resurrecting it, DJ. At the Air Show this year, they did a re-enactment of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It was an overwhelming experience.

Thanks to all that have served, and continue to serve; your sacrifices never go unnoticed or unappreciated.

On veterans day this year I met a gentleman at the dealer where I was getting my service truck serviced.

He was wearing a cap representing the ship he was on. I had never done this before but I wished him a happy veterans day and shook his hand. We got into a conversation and he was telling me about his days on board and firing the big guns.

He was very interesting to talk to and I was very honered to listen to what he had to say. I could have listened to him all day.

But to all who serve, and served. thank you all.

I will never forget the sacrifices made.
