    It's very important to remember Pearl Harbor, AZ, and thank you for making this thread! I was just talking to my daughter about this last week, as she had a major history project where she had to do a presentation on WWII and the Atomic Bomb. It's important parents talk to their kids about this day as well!
    WE MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER!
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

    John Stuart Mill (Look him up )

        We will never forget.


        I saw the beach scene of Saving Private Ryan for the first time and I was very close to tears. It's impossible to comprehend what those men and women went through.

            i think the part that gets to me is at the end in the cemetary.... but again i always will remember and honor those that faught in that war...i think of my grandmother who has since passed on...and my granfather that i nor my father knew, because he was killed on dec 19 1944 at the battle of the bulge when my dad was three...i think of my grandmother brother who also served there and died later from complications after being sent home...i think of those like her who had loved ones who laid thier life on the alter of freedom and what they went though...

            i think of my people who gave the highest percentage of soldiers for the war and also suffered the hightest casulty rate of any nationality...even today we lost a arapaho member in iraq

            this week the last original navajo code talker also died...


            so yes i think about this war all the time

                Hey AZ... This tragedy turned to be the worst mistake of this war (for Japan & Nazis) : bring the USA into the war...

                Now it sure was a very sad day that we (even outside the US) will remember...

                I will hijack (I know you won't mind AZ) your thread to salute all the people who fought the evil...
                for the past, the present and the future..
