A date which will live in infamy

It’s the 70th anniversary of the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. There are few veterans of the attack remaining; the Pearl Harbor Survivor’s Associations is disbanding because of it.

It was a terrible day for the United States, but it could have been much worse. Note that the comments, however, state that some of what Admiral Nimitz said was incorrect.

There doesn’t seem to be as much notice being taken of it this year as there was the last time it was a “round number” anniversary. Freeberg has some things to say about the subdued nature of the remembrances this year.
