I'm sitting at Pearl Harbor, about 200 yards from the Arizona Memorial, as I type this. It would be hard for me to forget it...

Sitting here it is hard to imagine that day. I've seen the films, I've seen buildings with bullet holes in them, I've seen all the locations where it happened on the island (it wasn't just Pearl Harbor, I live 1 mile from Wheeler AAF, where the first bombs were dropped), and it is still hard to imagine it happening.

I was fortunate enough to snag a trip this summer to Wheeler Army Airfield.

The chopper hanger we worked out of has the original siding, complete with bullet holes from that day. The concrete floor still has many pock-marks from the bullets.

When it gets quiet it's easy to imagine the buzzing sounds of the

#$%^&*( Jap planes.

Rather spooky.

I've seen the bullet holes there and at Hickam.

When they filmed that lousy "Pearl Harbor" with Ben Affleck there were Japanes planes flying all around here. It was kind of weird.

I think nut is referring to those little love letters we dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki (sp?) that pretty much convinced Charlie not to **** around with the US anymore.

Yeah, I know; I was just having a flashback to when he was the tailgunner on our B-17 Dreamsicle.

A movie by the creators of South Park.
Itís an entertaining movie but the reference of the theme song, ďAmerica **** Yea!Ē isnít necessarily anything Iíd be dropín on a topic dedicated to those that served during the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Not necessarily wrong, just poor taste.

Two A bombs....
Pay backs are a bitch, when they refused to surrender.

Give 'em hell Harry.

Salute to all who served and died.

I have an uncle who served in the South Pacific in WWII. He was a turrett gunner on a cruiser. Two guys fire those guns. He and his fellow gunner shot a kamikaze that blew apart as it dove in. The wing spun down and took his fellow gunner's head off right beside him.

I can not imagine seeing something like that. I salute and remember all who have served, are serving, or ever will serve.

A day that will live in infamy. But also a day that started the final rise to greatness that is the USA toady. It should not just be remembered for the lost lives but for the resolve this country took to wage a two front war and win them both! The world has not been the same since.

Fat Man and Little Boy were a trick we played on the Japs. They were afraid we'd keep doing it. But the joke was on them, we didn't have any more A bombs.

Quite true. The next weapon would have been ready by mid-March 1946.

Then again, we could have fire-bombed Japan into ashes during that period.

We did that before the A bombs. Nagasaki and Hiroshima were saved from the napalm attacks on purpose. We wanted to be able to show what the A bomb could do. It wouldn't be so effective to A bomb an already war torn city like Tokyo.

My father dropped out of college after Pearl Harbor and joined the Army Air Corp, where he piloted C47s.

My dad joined the Army right out of medical school in 1943. He entered as a captain.
