The day the Japanese woke a sleeping giant.
Nothing but respect to the fallen on that fateful day.
Thank you sir for your service.
And secondly for this thread regarding such an important part of our shared history.
Its is my honor to defend this country.
I had a customer who I also considered a friend, who was there that day, and he told me stories of the bravery and sacrifice those great Americans made.
RIP Ferol Stanton.
I went to my first concert 30 years ago today.
RIP Ferol Stanton
Would of loved to hear his stories of that day.
My first concert was the band Supertramp.
Thanks for sharing the pic. Good to put a face to the man who helped fight off the Japanese
Mine was Pat Benatar.
She was touring in support of her Get Nervous album.
Which spawned the hit single Shadows Of The Night.
In the video for which she pretended to be a WWII fighter pilot.
OMG, it's actually almost pertinent.
It's late here, I wish I could re-tell some of them at this hour, but I can assure you he never spoke in any way about that day without great sadness. Not prideful or looking for appreciation.
He was on the local news here up until, and on the day he died.
I wouldn't think so. Surprised he shared the stories.
Japan is under a tsunami warning (ironic being on this day)
I only saw him once a month, but he made a huge impact on me through our brief conversations.
His wife Marie, who I loved too, passed away, and he went within two weeks after her.
But he'll always be a hero, and she'll always be one too, the one who supported him through all of it.
Thank a seal. That's a hero.
Also raisin farmers. ;]
Can't forget what happened 44 months later
Little Boy being prepped to be loaded
My late grandfather's birthday. RIP Grandpa. I love you.
Even though it was the right thing to do at the time, and through the prism of history it was the right thing to do, it still makes me so sad that humans had to devolve into that.
But I'm like a flower child, so..
