    Pearl Harbor Day~~~

    I do not see a lot in the news about this incident, attack, deaths and not too many people think about December 7th any longer.

    May the dead rest in peace.

    I think about it every dec 7th

    But I honestly have a problem with the Saratoga and enterprise being deployed where they were the day before. Just sitting there is the water listening and watching the whole thing on their radar scopes.

      You can pretty much thank FDR for the success of the attack.
      This sig didn't cost me any money.

        Wasn't the Saratoga in San Diego?

        I know what you mean, Cate. It used to be a bigger deal. Now, I bet most high school kids couldn't tell you when WWII was.
        I don't know.

          As a West Coast sailor for several years, I was in Pearl Harbor several times.

          Sailing thru Battleship Row and then doing honors passing the USS Arizonia Memorial was very sad to me each time.

          My Grandfather was at Schofield Barracks when it went down.

          I toured Nagasaki one time. At that time I felt pretty sad for all the people that perished.

          We do exercises with the Japanese Navy one big op is RimPac, I often wondered what the crew of their ships were thinking when they moor in Pearl.

            Think I meant the USS Lexington. Sorry!

              Every time I've been in Pearl I visit the USS Arizona to pay tribute to a uncle.

              More zippers and foreigners than muricans visiting.

                Japanese trip me out in their culture. My tour bus to Nagaski stopped at a gift shop before we got to the Memorial park.

                When we was leaving all the employees lined the sidewalk and bowed to us. Touching seeing who we were and where we was at.

                          FOX had something about Pearl all day. There were several shows over the weekend documenting the event.

                              Yep.

                              I'm sure you also recall the Norton Sound being a test platform.

                              When I was teaching Tomahawk at Dam Neck we got a couple of FC's from the Norton Sound. 1st & 2nd Class Petty Officers. The only ribbon they had was good conduct.

                              To fuck with them one of us would say hey your ribbon is on upside down.. They looked down first few times to see. lol
