A date which will live in infamy

This is the place for those men and women who have given of themselves in military service to our country. Feel free to discuss anything as it relates to prior (or current) service... and we all thank you for your service!

A date which will live in infamy

#1

Post by delta6 »

Eighty years ago today, December 7, 1941, the United States found itself compelled into World War II.
A day to remember, which in the following years, 16 million Americans served, 291,000 died and 1,076,000 were injured.
With only about 240,000 WW2 veterans still alive, today is a good day to reach out to one and thank them for their service and the freedoms that we enjoy.

Always a somber day in our home growing up. Dad knew people that were involved.
