I've always believed this should be a national holiday.

Proud of my Naval Service(1992-1996).

I agree with the Holiday part and not just because it would be a day off work...

The sad thing is that when I mentioned the date to my co-workers they were like, yeah, so what, it's the 7th of December...so I said, you know, Pearl Harbor, WWII...they looked at me like I was an idiot...

Just because it didn't happen to us...doesn't give us the right to forget...

There is actually a movie coming out next year, can't remember the name of it, about Pearl and I belive the entire war. When I saw the preview at the theatre I welled up and I NEVER cry.

That is sad.

Ever see the commercial with Tom Hanks pointing out the fact that our WW2 vets do not have a momorial?

I also heard a study where college sophmores were asked about the Gulf War. They don't remember it.

Thanks DJay. It really means a lot when people say that. More than you realize.

As much as I hate the governement, I have always had a profound respect for those who serve in the military. I was not able to fulfill my dream of being a naval aviator due to a degenerative eye condition. I still dream of being launched off of an aircraft carrier. For those who have served, thank you.

My great uncle was killed on a ship there (can't remember which one...on the tip of my tongue...dammit! I'll call my folks and find out). Every Dec. 7th my family calls each other, wishes each other well and spends a moment of silence in his memory. It amazes me that so many people have no clue what happened on this day. And we wonder what has happened to this country . . .

Duck, unbelievable that no WWII memorial was ever built until now...I'm sure you've seen Saving Private Ryan...when I see the cematary at Normandy...it sends chills down my spine...to think how many people have lost their life defending the freedoms we take for granted...and then for others to not even remember them...

To those like you, who have served this great country and risked the possibility of losing your life to protect my freedoms...I salute you...<P>

I am grateful to the vets of WWII even though I am only 35 years old. They didn't have the oppurtunity to have a [i]push-button[/i] war like the skirmishes of today. They had to grind it out on the ground, hand-to-hand combat and tank-to-tank, very little close air support.

I would hate to think what would happen to us today if we had to go to a war like that. I am sure the forces would do their very best, but I am not sure if it would be enough. I don't think the people in charge of the war would be smart enough to handle it.

[b]Thanks to all of the vets, especially the WWII vets, you all have made a huge difference. Sorry you vets don't get the recognition you justly deserve.[/b]

To all those lost on this day 59 years ago, you are gone but not forgotten. My father served in the Navy in WWII, he too, is now gone, and I proudly served four years during the early 60s, also in the Navy. To all of us who know history, this was the most cowardly, dastardly attack on the United States, and will forever, in FDRs words, be a Day of Infamy. Also, I will say a prayer of thanks, for all of those who have paid the supreme sacrifice, to keep the great nation, free. May you all be with God.

Mark M,
About 2 months before I left the Navy, we were in the Persian Gulf, and I was being sent home to transfer over to civilian life. I got to get shot off on one of the carriers transport planes(called a cod).

Dude, it shakes you to the bone& nearly pops your eyes out of the sockets. I'm glad I got to do it before my time was up.
