The Day Still Lives In Infamy

On December 7, 1941, the cowardly Japanese launched an unprovoked military response to what was up to that point in time a series of diplomatic discussions. Allying themselves with Hitler, the cowardly Japanese thought to totally destroy the American naval presence in the Pacific, and were summarily punished most severely for their actions. I'd like to personally thank President Truman for using nuclear weapons against the Japanese, as my Father was waiting in a naval transport for deployment to invade the Japanese mainland, most likely would have perished as Marines were designated to have been the point of the spear, and then there'd be no me.

We remember the men who died during that attack, and will forever express our condolences to their families and friends.

Couldn't agree more, John.
