    Default Lest we forget, Patriotic GDG

    "Dec 7 1941 a date which will live in infamy", were the words of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt when he addressed Congress the next day. 66 yrs ago today, the Empire of Japan began America's participation in WWII with a dastardly sneak attack on our military base at Pearl Harbour Hawaii.2500 Americans, our fathers, brothers and husbands gave their lives that day when our nation got sucker punched by the Imperial Japanese Navy under Admiral Isoroko Yamamoto.

    Each year the list of survivors gets shorter. Each year more of those who lived thru the death of Arizona leave us and are accorded the unique privilege of being entomed aboard with their fallen shipmates. ON a much larger scale, each year more and more of those who stood tall and volunteered to put themselves in harm's way to win that war are shuffing off this mortal coil. My dad, who landed at Omaha Beach left me last year, my Grandad, a veteran of Philippine Sea and Leyte Gulf ,in 1961. It won't be many more years and the commemorations of Decoration Day, Armistice Day, and Pearl Harbour Day will go on with no living veterans of WWII. We baby Boomers and our children and grandchildren owe a debt to the Greatest Generation that can never be marked paid in full, save in one way, living and preserving the dream for which they sacrificed, a free and strong United States.

    Thank a WWII vet TODAY.

    Bob,

    Thanks for posting this. I made sure I wore a patriotic scrub top to work today. We often have veteran's come in. I always thank anyone who has served our country. But, it doesn't always come up during their visit so the scrub top usually get a comment to bring their service out.

    God bless everyone who has served our country!
