History on this day!
Attack on Pearl Harbor
I'm watching Tora Tora Tora right now. It is definitely the best depiction of the events.
I am watching Tora Tora Tors as well. This day will always be remembered. Being born on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor is the main thing that sparked my deep love for history.
I have not seen any remembrances on the tube. So far it's just the Mandella whine.
I'll have to check the History channel.
The History Channel isn't playing anything, which is odd because usually them and the military show Pearl Harbor specials all day. But the Hatfields and McCoys is on History, which isn't a bad watch. But the Military Channel, Sundance Channel, and Turner Classic Movies are the only channels showing Pearl Harbor movies/specials.
Let us always remember the sacrifices made so that tyranny might be defeated.
Thank you all for the happy birthday wishes.
Just last year we lost a neighbor who served in WWII. Died on Dec. 7th. We think he finally let go after a long battle. He was an awesome man and left me a book of his along with an army hat. "The stories of our war" which had his first hand experiences in it. Was very sad to see him go. On a better note, happy birthday from Ohio!
There is a MOH recipient buried near me. He died while helping his fellow sailors escape a sinking ship during the Pearl Harbor attack. I didn't go out in the cold this year to visit his grave.
There is a second MOH recipient buried in the same cemetery which is pretty uncommon outside or Arlington.
