Today marks the 64th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. I was born in 1953 and thus way too young to have fought in WWII, but my father lived through it as a child (and served in the Navy during the Korean conflict). It was through my father's model building of WWII ships, planes and armor that I became interested in WWII, and watching many John Wayne movies also helped to feed the interest. I only bring this up because for the first time there was no mention of it on CNN.com or NPR. I had to go hunt up references via Google.
I remember Pearl Harbor, what happened there, the memory of those who died there, and what it means.
