Remember Pearl Harbor


Remember Pearl Harbor, a day that lives in infamy. A good friend, Joe Hydrusko, was on a ship hear the Arizona and when the Arizona went down. Joe was a corpsman on a hospital ship and he dove in and saved over 20 men. Joe was never awarded the CMH, and he should have been. He was quite a character and sadly died in a plane accident over twenty years ago. He used to fly his Stinson Reliant around the statue of liberty on Pearl Harbor day and drop roses on it in remembrance of what happened and the people that lost their lives that day. It was something I have to admit seemed unreal to me until we had 9/11. God bless Joe, and the rest.

Thank you for reading this blog.

Great story. We must never forget these great Americans. It's important we pass their stories down to today's kids.

My father was a USMC scout-sniper who fought on Guadalcanal and other Pacific battles during WW2. I KNOW [yes, he is still alive and kicking at the age of eighty-six] he remembers "this day in infamy."

@Bill:
Kids today have no idea. They think Pearl Harbor is a movie, at best.
@William:
My dad was a tailgunner on a B-17. He remembered it as well, but he passed almost two years ago. I miss the old man a lot. That generation was a special lot.

I let me 8 year old stay up late last night watching it on History Channel. He said "My teachers never talk about this, I wonder if they know it happened?"

@Athena et al:
You should hear Reverend Wright talk about Pearl Harbor. He said it is the day w dropped the bombs on both Nagasaki and Hiroshima. This is what passes for both religion and history? Liberals have a template they apply to everything, a revisionist illusion that suits their narrative. THey are too afraid to face the truth, reality. Their world is upside down and Obama is the upside down king.
