I would like to give a very sincere thank you to all veterans. And we must never forget those that didn't even get a fighting chance.

I visited Oahu last June. It was a very somber experience. Bless them all.

"I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve"

This is a supposed quote from a Japanese admiral after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The photo by the original poster is surreal to me.It is hard to comprehend and gives me an awful feeling when I think about the lives lost that day.Then there is the 60 million lives lost worldwide as a result of WW2.What a terrible moment in history.

Today is the first time in years that I was not able to buy one of the remaining Pearl survivors his breakfast on Dec 7th since I am out of town.

He still is carrying pieces of shrapnel in his body after all those years. He has a piece that he thinks may be a 6 mm bullet on his breast bone that his doctor is always wanting to remove. Buck will not anyone take it off as it is now a part of him after all these years

.

Naval General (Admiral) Isoroku Yamamoto spoke this. He was against the invasion of China and war with the U. S. He studied at Harvard University and had two postings as a naval attaché in Washington, D.C.. This gave him a chance to travel the U.S. and see our agricultural and industrial might.

One of the most memorable trips Ive made was to the Arizona memorial:

That Idiot in chief needs to take notes from Pearl Harbor on what it takes to end a war.
