    Yes I do; our base is having a ceremony for the Sailor of the Year award too.

    I always remember; a large portion of America does not.

    Yes I do. I had the honor of once meeting a gentleman who had received the Medal of Honor for his service at Pearl Harbor. At the time he was the oldest living recipient. I was pleased to see that there was an Honor Flight to get some of the old vets back to Pearl Harbor this year.

    There will be much of that here in San Diego today; the Sub Base is right below the Rosecrans National Cemetary.

    I worked with a Pearl Harbor survivor. He put in his 20 in the Navy and then went to work for the government. He was there when I got there and was still working when I retired 20 years later.

    A date that will live in infamy. I read those words at the new WWII Memorial last weekend and when I read those words I always hear it in Roosevelt's voice from the radio broadcast.

    I got to see Pearl Harbor for the first time end of Sept this year; didn't get time to go to the museum for the full tour and all, but got to fly over it on the way in and out of HI.

    glad to finally see it with my own eyes. Not sure I want to go to NY NY though, too crowded for my liking!

    Never forget

    This was the day that made my grandfather lie about his age and join the Navy.


    Let us never forget those who have served or why they do it..
