Pearl Harbor Day

Sixty-five years ago today, we were attacked by the Japanese, plunging the United States into World War II. I've mentioned before that my Grandpa joined the Navy and saw combat in both Europe and the Pacific. He's no longer with us, but if he were, today would be a day when I would thank him for what he and millions of others around the globe did during those difficult years. And if anyone reading this served with the Allies in World War II, I'd like to wish you the same heartfelt thanks for your sacrifices.
