This is the day most people today forget

Postby Wayne Pierce » 12-07-2017 05:20 PM

REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR !
This is a day that the present generations does not identify with. For most have no ties with the generations who were around then. This was, at the time, the 911 attack on us.

There was no mention of it in the News here or in the newspaper. Sadly forgotten.

Remember Pearl Harbor!

Man, that is sad. The very event that caused the US to shift from a stance of "neutrality", to entering the war, and it was only a side-headline on a couple of the major news outlets I checked while at work today.

I also read that there are only 5 survivors from the USS Arizona still living today. 2400+ casualties from the Pearl Harbor attack, compared to 2900+ from 9/11 if I remember correctly. It was, and still is, a big deal. Kinda equates to the 9/11 of 1941 for some of us "younger" guys.

Great comparison, Cody.
