Never Forget Pearl Harbor...

Ahh yes, the passing of another monumental year. 65 years since the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the loss of over 2000 Heroes. Thrust forward into a war to lose thousands more. Emerge victorious for the free world.
I was reading an interview today about the reunion of the survivors of that day. This will probably be their last one as they are well into their 80's and some in failing health. It's difficult to believe that so much time has passed that we will soon be losing all our veterans of WWII.
It is so important to remember the Heroes of the past, as they have kept for us the freedoms to which we have become accustomed. We must also support the Heroes of the present so that we as a country may have a future.
