Remember December 7th, 1941..

A date which will live in infamy... I know for most of our current generations, 9/11/2001 will ring in our ears for our lifetime, but don't forget the massive sacrifices and lives taken away from December 7th, 1941, until September 2, 1945.

Make sure to remind kids that Pearl Harbor wasn't just a movie, but an event which added to the bloodshed for nations around the world. Thanks Veterans.

Great post/thread! I'd agree that following 9/11 history teachings for younger generations have changed to focus on that as such a monumental moment for America. (Not to take away from it any) But the attack on Pearl Harbor and subsequent events that led up to US involvement in WWII should never be forgotten.

It is hard to believe that all of Russia, China, Europe, Canada , US, Australia, Japan, and many more nations were at war with each other. We fought a war and conquered hundred of thousands of square miles in four years and after 11 years we have not been able to beat a bunch of illiterate bronze age hooligans in Afghanistan.

And in WW2, something outrageous like 90 percent of the federal budget went to defense spending.

Times have changed.

I wonder if kids today even remember 'Pearl Harbor' the movie.

RIP to those who died that day and much appreciation for those who fought in the War.
