Yesterday was the 70th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor. I feel like a total jerk in not posting something yesterday. I let a personal situtation happen yesterday get in the way of posting something that SHOULD be remembered.
The attach occurred on 7 December at 7:48 am. Of the fleet and personnel: 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,402 Americans were killed and 1,282 wounded.
If you have a chance head on over to the blog The Graffiti of War Project. There is a nice post about yesterday's remembrance and a interview with a Medal of Honor recipient from World War II. The Medal of Honor recipient wrote a poem about Pearl Harbor and it is well worth the read.
