Thanks Johnny.

I heard today that there are only 5 men still alive that were on the U.S.S. Arizona - 4 will attending the ceremony today - all of them in their 90's.  Below is the U.S.S. Arizona in her former glory.

Remembering today not just the atrocity of Pearl Harbor, but the incredible patriotism and heroism of the men and women of the greatest generation who loved their country more than they loved themselves, for they gave up one to defend & serve the other.

May their sacrifices never be forgotten.

I pulled in and out of Pearl Harbor many times in the late 60's aboard an aircraft carrier, and it was always an eerie feeling. All but four of those ships were repaired and were back in commission, attacking the carriers that carried the Japanese aircraft.

On the way home from work I listened to an interview on NPR from a US Soldier who fired upon a Japanese Submarine hours before the main attack. The emotion in his voice was very powerful and moving. It makes me sad these important stories will be lost as the remaining Soldiers pass. He is 95.
