Amen. These days too many people are willing to give away the freedoms that so many died and are still dying to protect.

It also shows the hazards of containment and trade embargoes trying to constrain an aggressive nation. It will be interesting to see what Russia does the next few years.

If people do forget and we don't carry a big stick, (while walking softly), something like it will likely happen again. Peace is the ability to kick their asss.

My Dad who is 92 was threw Pearl Harbor on his way threw to the south Pacific. It was so devastated and ingrained in him that he never ever wanted to go back to Hawaii. We always thought he would enjoy it, but would have know part of it. Those veterans saw and endured so much. They were not alone as many of our veterans young and older have many demons in their memory. I hope and pray they all can be consoled.

Dad joined the Army on his 18th birthday in 40 so he was already serving when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.
Being in the Army he ended up in Europe as part of Patton's 4th Armored Division, was badly wounded at the Rhine a little after they freed Bastogne. Passed away 41 years ago at 54 years old
