Dec. 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. Today marks the 70th anniversary.
My late great grandfather saw the war firsthand

Consequently, when my dad passed away at 87 years old, I had already dealt with all the feelings that you go through, and though it also hurt, I knew that I would get through it.
As for spouses, children, or siblings passing ... don't even want to think about it.
On the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor?
Have been there, it is such a beautiful place for something so unthinkable to have happen.
Hubby and I and some friends, stood on the shrine and looked down upon the USS Arizona, is very visible and is very unsettling to think that approx. 1100 are still in the ship. Their families decided to let them remain.
The whole time you are in the shrine the PA system is speaking out the names of all who died. Is very touching and heartbreaking.
May God rest their souls!

My grandfather fought in the war as well. He passed away before I was old enough to have even heard of the war, so I never got to hear any of his stories. I do know he was involved in helping to clear out one of the concentration camps.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
