my wifes grandfather was a pearl harbor survivor, he was a good man and great American. I miss him and think about him often, he never spoke much about the happenings on that day, other than that was the worst day of his life. All those men and women should be honored who have fought and died and served this great nation. God bless America !!!!!!!!!!

My wife's father was a paratrooper, 11th Airborne in WWII, Pacific Theatre the Luzon campaign in Philipines. After serving a year or two + he was mustering out under the Golden Gate Bridge at Fort Point, on Pearl Harbor Day of all times. Word quickly came of the Japs' attack, and they told him, 'Sir, you are not going anywhere', and he mustered right back in, right there at Fort Point, CA. to serve another year or so in Okinawa there to finish things off. Said it was horrible but gave no details. He went through Fort Benning paratrooper school known as the Frying Pan and made over 400 jumps. Her uncle was in the 101st Airborne, jumped on D-Day and lived to tell about it because they dropped them way over the beach too far in, past the front line of the Nazis. These guys in part, are responsible for our FREEDOM today. Salute!

old fudd, the one thing about history, it repeats itself. Someday, lack of acknowledgement and recognition of this day and other notable anniversaries will result in that same thing all over again in similar fashion.

Watching the war history today I realized how fortunate I was to visit so many of those places during my deployments. To have my boots on the ground that so many fought and sacrificed for makes me feel humbled.

Lest we never forget! My concern is that too many Americans don't even know about it.

Article in today's paper about a NAVY GUY that found an open port hole and 15 of His Shipmates could escape. HE unfortunately didn't make it. (I forget what ship) That's the bad thing about the MEDAL of HONOR. People who get it are usually NOT alive. Rest In PEACE "WILLIAM DORMAN" USS INDINAPOLIS 1945! ( Uncle that I never met)

My dad was steaming in to Pearl when the Japs hit it. Not yet into the harbor,but he still got hit by shrapnel from an enemy plane attack. Wrapped a rag around the wound and manned the guns!

RIP great uncle Stopyra.

From: rick allison

My dad turned 18 two days after Pearl. He wanted to drop out and enlist, but his dad made him finish high school first.

The day after graduation, every guy in his class bussed from Charles City, Iowa to Des Moines to join up. He tried to get in the marines and the army air corp but they were full up...so he went with the navy.

After torpedo school in Idaho (???), he was assigned to the USS Prairie in Boston, Mass. He was attached with the Prairie for the duration.

After a short stint hunting u-boats in the north-west Atlantic out of Argentia, Newfoundland (1 kill), they sailed for the Pacific, and made it to Pearl Harbor in early '43. He told me it was still a mess...bunker oil covered the harbor water, ships being salvaged, lot of ruin still visible.

A great man, and greater father...miss him dearly, and think of both my parents every day. What an incredible generation!

I was thinking the same thing as "old Fudd", I never heard it mentioned all day on any stations I watched. It was just like it never happened.
