Default A Salute to Our Veterans

Surfing the web and seeing almost nothing regarding today being the anniversary of Pearl Harbor on the homepages of the major media outlets. Maybe I didnít do a good job but for a day that will live in infamy I thought it should get more press. Especially because so many of todayís youth are so distant from it, exposed to the holocaust deniers and rise of the neo Nazi party as though it was almost normal.

For any on the mane that served, regardless of our politics, I give heartfelt thanks for your service. My father was a loader in a Sherman tank in WWII and was also in Dachau 8 days after its liberation. The quote I remember him saying when describing it to me when I was probably 9 years old was ďit smelled like death.Ē Not surprisingly for the era he came home with PTSD that was never addressed.

I have great respect for what you did and were willing to do for our country. Your service should not be forgotten.

Good point. I deleted my 2nd post. Given the responses I may delete the whole thread.
