A salute to all the brave fellows who gave the ultimate sacrifice all those years ago.
Rest in peace knowing that the sleeping giant got up and kicked their butts.
Japanerman isn't a language I want to speak.

It's hard for us to envision what ocurred on that fateful day 60 years ago....

It was the opening act of a hell that was to be lived through for nearly 4 years....To speak of the men and women who went through it as "The Greatest Generation" is an understatement. Their sacrifice secured the foundation for the country we live in today.

Our thoughts should be with them for as long as this nation exists...

I don't think I can add to what has already been said over the years, and do justice for the acts of selflessness and bravery.

Yep, the greatest generation, able to fight a WW and end it in 4 years, something we can't seem to do today.

Salute to the men and women in uniform that fought and died on this historical day.

I couldn't have put it any better myself.

Salute to the men and women in uniform that fought and died on this historical day. I agree wholeheartedly, and add all our servicemen/women in our armed forcing fighting abroad, or at home. It seems to be the rest of the people of our nation that can't seem to get on the same page. BTW, a recent poll I heard ranked the U.S. military as the world's largest volunteer armed force. Of those volunteers, (according to the poll) 88 to 90% are Christians.

For my part, I did my standard observance: I watched Tora! Tora! Tora! (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066473/).

On a tangentially related note, on 1 December, the Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center, where I work, celebrated the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the base. The new base commander, Marine Colonel Pratt (the first Marine to command the base) presided.
