Re: OT Too many have forgotten
I never knew anyone personally, who was at Pearl Harbor, when it was attacked.
I did however, know two men who were POW's, in the Japanese War, and were Purple Heart awarded, one was disabled.
They are both dead now, but I'm so thankful to have met, and known these guys.
They both were ladies men, and like to enjoy a beer, or glass of wine. They weren't big on details about their time as POW's, about the only thing I ever heard them say about it was, "They never lost faith, that Uncle Sam would come for them eventually."
I will always remember them, especially when Pearl Harbor day rolls around.
Here's to "Albert" and "Bob". Cheers!
