SVT NAJA Posted December 7, 2010 Report Share Posted December 7, 2010 On this, the 69th anniversary of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese, I want to salute our military, past and present, for defending the USA and guarding our freedom from those who are, or would be our enemy. If you haven't seen this before, here is FDR's historic speech on 12/8/1941 before a joint session of Congress. http://www.youtube.c...h?v=3VqQAf74fsE Although many service members lost their lives on that fateful day, the most notable are probably the 1,177 men killed on the USS Arizona. http://en.wikipedia....rizona_Memorial Some of you may have seen this wall below located at one end of the memorial situated abreast the USS Arizona which records the names of those shipmates killed in action. It is something I will never forget. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
