Me either.

The bullet holes are still on the sides of the PACAF headquarters building as a reminder of the terrible event.

While we concern ourselves in Memphis about it being "Cold", consider the wakeup many young men had 76 years ago.

You just can't "get" what went down here until you've visited Pearl and the Memorial. I was aboard the USS Meyerkord FF-1058 enrooted to WESPAC when we stopped in Pearl for a few days.

I keep flashing back to the young / old men that are still entombed below.

They were kids years before I was born, and for me at 54, they are forever younger.

Always going to be younger and older than the next generation. Such a limbo to be in.

Prayers and drinks toasted for all of those lost their loves this morning so many years ago.

I can't forget it - even though I'm not old enough to remember it.

It was a shocking event to say the least.

It's also the one driving reason I would like to visit Hawaii.

If you have an interest, there is a great story in today's Orange County Register about a group of unarmed B 17 bombers that arrive at Pearl from San Francisco at 8 AM on that Sunday morning.

That's what the radar operators thought was coming in. Turns out it was the Japanese strike force. One of the worst cases of mistaken identities ever.

A day that still lives in infamy!

My Dad was severely wounded by a nip Kamikazi while manning a morse code radio on an aircraft carrier awaiting the invasion of Japan. Many years later Dad and I went to Hawaii together to attend my half brothers wedding. Sitting at the bar of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel Dad hooked up with a Japanese pilot that was part of the Pearl Harbor bombing! By the end of the night they were both drunk and best friends. Goes to prove something - what I haven't figured out yet.

“what I haven't figured out yet. ”

I’m not sure either but it’s along the lines of people are people, it’s greed and power that puts us against each other.

Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

RIP to all who lost their lives at Pearl and all over the globe in other conflicts.

I spent a day at Pearl Harbor a couple years ago. Had tears running down my face while at the USS Arizona monument.
