Today is Pearl Harbor Day, the 69th anniversary of the attack by Japan on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii that got the United States officially into World War II.

Over 1000 men alone died on the  Arizona, which sank in the harbor and is on the the tourist route there.  President Franklin D Roosevelt said it was a day that would live in infamy.  It certainly did that.

This is the event that also got my late dad into the war.  He really didn’t want to be drafted into the army, didn’t want to do combat duty on the ground in Europe.

Dad wanted to finish college and then to join the Navy and be in the war in the Pacific.  His actually getting accepted into the Navy’s “90-day-Wonder” program is another story, but he was able to graduate and served on the Lucky Leon.

Thanks, Dad, for helping to keep us free and to come out alive.  I sure miss you.

Deep thanks to all who served in WWII and all the wars our country has fought to keep us free.

We have a lot of work to do at home as well to keep our freedom from eroding and to honor and support those who still serve and their families who sacrifice their absence.

May God bless you all.
