A Day Of Infamy

Pearl Harbor...

Brian and I got to go to Hawaii at Christmas in 1986, we toured the Arizona Memorial.  It was a special and sobering day.

I was honored to have a conversation with a lady whose husband was stationed at "Pearl" during that time.  She said they lived 'over the hill' from the base and could not even hear what was going on, but it was on the radio and it took hours for her husband to get in touch with her, tell her he was OK

It was a day and time I can not even begin to imagine.

It is one of those times when FREEDOM is not 'free'

Take Care and God Bless All


  1. You are lucky to have been right up to the Memorial. When I was there (a week for my work) back in the mid-1980's, I took a boat cruise that went past it, but not right up to it. I was 1 year old when it was bombed.

  2. You get a lot of jokes if you were born on that day even if not in that year.
