It's unfortunate that each passing year finds less and less coverage \ remembrance of that fateful event in 1941. I may find The History Channel showing old footage and perhaps one of the broadcast channels will show Tora, Tora, Tora, but that's about it.

I will always remember that date. My Mom went into labor with my oldest brother when the harbour was bombed. Anytime something comes on TV about that day I try and watch it. When I was in Hawaii I went to the memorial, pretty moving experience. was the USS West Virginia hit?

My dad was in the navy but not at Pearl at the time of the attack. He was in the South Pacific, didn't talk much at all about the war. 1946 I was born, there are allot of us baby boomers. Thank you to the Greatest Generation.
