On the national level this was a day which has lived in infamy. However, in my small two year old world, this was the day I finally met my baby brother. He was born on Thanksgiving Day and came home from the hospital on this infamous day. I called him this evening to commemorate the happy aspects of that day
On the other hand, after this day, Dad and Uncle David joined the marines. Uncle Bill joined the navy and served on the USS Iowa, and Uncle Woody joined the army. David lost his life on Okinawa. All the rest returned safely. David, too, returned to be buried in the local churchyard.
REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR!!! I will never forget,
