Their numbers are dwindling but not their valor. Just wanted to say thank you to those few survivors of WWII. If you have a family member or friend that served then, tell them I said thank you. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

It is nice to recognize vets on this day. When I did my time, things weren't pleasant. Got spit on, called obscene names and all sorts of other fine gestures. Most of the vets I know stay under the radar and only acknowledge if asked about it. So thank you to the unsung veterans. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pray.gif)

I have a huge population of vets from recent times and still some from the 60s that come to my welding classes.. I make a point of thanking them if they share that they are vets..

Such a huge sacrifice so many made.. They all deserve our thanks and respect.

Many folks think guys my age don't remember the significance of today. I can tell you from an early age that I appreciated the sacrifices that so many made on December 7th and in the many years since. Thank you vets for all you've done for us, and particularly on this day of infamy...

Visiting the Arizona Monument or the Vietnam wall will bring tears to your eyes when you realize the sacrifice of these men. Even if you don’t agree with some of the conflicts they had to endure, you have to appreciate what these soldiers had to go through.

I always think of my cousin Claude on December 7th, because he was a Pharmacist Mate on board the hospital ship USS Solace at Pearl Harbor on the fateful day. In this picture, the USS Solace is the all white ship at the north end of Ford Island sitting mostly by itself.

Interesting thing, was that the ship was not bombed, torpedoed or strafed during the attack.

He survived the war.
