    Reminder Remember

    On this very day 67 years ago, and just a few hours from now. Our young men and women in Pearl Harbor were fighting for their lives and many of them loosing. How I wish I could have been there to stand by there sides!

    My wife's uncle rode out the attack in the forward fire control tower of the Tennesse. He had a front row seat! Spent the rest of the war on a salvage tug bringing back damaged ships for repair.

    Needless to say, he's got lots of good stories to tell....

    I'm too young to remember. I wasn't born yet. But I do salute those who experienced that terrible day, those who died and those who endured.
