Today is Pearl Harbor Day

Today is National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. I have hardly seen it mentioned anywhere. It was such a significant event in US, (even World) history. It was supposed to be "A date that will live in infamy" but has it? I wonder if the memory of September 11 will fade after more than 70 years have gone by. Thousands of Americans died at Pearl Harbor. My mother remembers the day and hearing about it on the radio.

Amazing how few people know about that day or even give it a passing thought.

There doesn't seem to be any let up in the number of people visiting the Arizona in Pearl Harbor or Punchbowl, but it's 'distant past' for many young people today.

Two of my uncles served in WWII -- one in the Pacific. I only remember the war efforts -- saving grease, needing ration stamps to buy restricted items like gasoline, tires, shoes, and my mother laboring in her Victory Garden.

Pearl Harbor attack happened a few months before I was born but my parents always talked about it.
Front page of the Des Moines paper has an article about a survivor.
