Bill Morris: Pearl Harbor Day ... time to say thank you

Pearl Harbor Day ... time to say thank you

The attack on Pearl Harbor was 69 years ago today.  So long ago, and not many of those veterans are still with us, but it is important for us to remember.  This isn't just about World War II ....

The young men and women who were the right age to join the war effort had already been through the Great Depression.  They were toughened long before the U.S. entered the war. 

Then they signed up in droves to help defend freedom around the world.  Their victory changed the course of their future ... and our past.

But they didn't stop there.  They came back and continued to reshape the course of the United States, creating the most prosperous and opportunity-filled country in history.  More wars, boom and bust, economic upheavals, political changes, massive shifts in international relations ....  They kept going, knowing how important that is ... to keep going.

We all enjoy the legacy of The Greatest Generation.  Today is a great time to say, "Thank you!"

If you have ever seen the Arizona wreckage you would realize how dramatic that date was.  So many of our men were lost at Pearl Harbor.  My father was a lucky one who survived.

...Remembering - along with you.  Such a historic event that brought the US into the war that was already devastating Europe.  Have we learned anything at all in these 69 years?
