When I think of our freedom, which I thank God every day that we have, I think of our past and present military, and the sacrifice they made. I try to always ask God to watch over the military that we have now making this a safer country for us to live in.
I'll never forget our folks in the military and the sacrifice they have made for our freedom. Sad but this is not even taught in a lot of our school systems. It is in our town but that's because most here are retired Military and a bunch are still on active duty.
I can't never forget that date. I married my first wife on Pearl Harbor Day. I guess I let my guard down on that date too! Seriously, I think about the sacrifices of the WW2 generation a lot. They deserve all our respect.
I was almost 7 on that day and remember it well and the following years of sacrifices we did at home with scrap metal drives and rationing and so on. I look back now with great pride at how everybody pitched in and how the young men stood in line to enlist.
Yeah, but it didn't bring back the lives lost that could have been saved by being vigilant and responding to the info they had coming in-instead of thinking we were safe and let's all go to the party---what a waste of men who never had a chance---when will this country learn to watch their hands, watch their eyes, and let them know "Not on My Watch!!" We have the best snooptools in the world---but the same half-asleep mindsets processing the info...
