My thoughts are that the majority of Americans under 40 have no idea what took place all these years ago. It's not only sad there is no longer any reverence for this day in our history, but it is frightening that it is no longer discussed in our schools. So very sad.
Not teaching history is a sure way to get it repeated. I try to explain this stuff to the grandkids and they are starting to see what I mean. Hope it continues with them throughout their life. I feel sorry for the kids being brainwashed and no one straighting them out.
My Grand father was living in San Diego when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. His immediate reaction was to enlist. He served on aircraft carrier USS Boxer, he was a plane mechanic, I'll never forget what he did and what happened that day
