Pearl Harbor Day Remembered

12-07-09b.jpg

I always think of my Dad each December 7th.

I think of him because he was at Pearl Harbor when it was attacked, a 21-year-old Marine in the service of his country.

I did another post about my Dad earlier this year.

I came across this interesting account of that "day that will live in infamy".

Hi Nancy, thank you for this writing this remembrance post about such a tragic day in our history. We owe so much to the men and women who serve in our military.

Thank you.

Great post, Nancy, and another time to honor your dad.

Well thats really a great thing and a great blog. I respect your thoughts and your Dad and his deed that because of his sacrifice we can sit without worries along with our family. I would like salute everyone in this field.

Anne:

What a wonderful post to honour your father and his comrades and all who offer themselves in service for our peace. I really enjoyed reading your other post about your dad too. Thanks for sharing about him!

I didn't know your dad was there. I have learned a lot about Pearl Harbor Day and the bombing living on Oahu. The fighter jets fly low right over our school every day at 7:55 am every December 7th. It brings chills each year. Although late in commenting, this is a wonderful post and tribute to your dad and all of the men who were there that day.
