Passed without a whimper on this forum, but I'll update you!
The 72nd anniversary of Pearl Harbor.
Some clips -
FDR put all Japanese Americans in internment camps though they had committed no crime except being of Japanese ancestry, many when they returned had lost everything they accumulated. I wonder how criminals today would feel if they were made to live under those conditions.
Had the US not risen there would be more Japanese & German speaking countries in the world today!
When folks were drafted their home life shut down - many were boated (if the boat made it) to Europe, Africa & the Far East, spending several years there. Only method of communication was V-Mail (like writing on toilet paper). Pay was $21/month for a private.
When you think of all the freedoms you enjoy, you might want to thank those guys, most of whom have now passed.
The last war we have fought where our country was threatened, the threat today is cultural, we need to recognize that .
