  1. ” You can bet that the men and women we honor today – and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago – never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard our national anthem being played.” – US Pacific Command Commander Adm. Harry Harris

  2. I was watching a retrospective on the attack tonight complete with Japanese airplanes, falling bombs and exploding American ships when they cut to a commercial…. for Mitsubishi.

  3. Just a few old geezers left now to tell it first hand. Dad would have been 96 this year. He didn’t like to talk about the war. He was a pilot at Hickam field. His brother, a pilot, and sister all served in the war. The youngest stayed at home on the farm. Poor, midwestern farmers. Sons and daughter of poor immigrants. What grit!

    • Well said. Bunch of those old geezers gather at a local coffee shop in Moraga, bits all shot away by various foes in battles long ago. Grit. Yes. Gentlemen all…

  4. We need to keep all those old geezer’s stories alive. When my mom would tell me about all the sacrifices that were made here in the states to support the war it really helped me to appreciate the nation I inherited from her. I’m glad I was able to hear the stories first hand and hopefully my children will believe them when I pass them down.
