    Made the pilgrimage to Pearl Harbor this past August. A very sobering and moving experience...

    Sixty eight years ago, my squadron was stationed at Hickam Field, Hawaii.



    At 7:48 a.m. Hawaii local time, the Japanese Empire attacked the United States Forces stationed in Hawaii without warning.



    Four members of my squadron lost their lives in the attack.



    Private First Class Jack Fox
    Private Frank J. Lango
    Private William H. Northway
    Private Felix S. Wegrzyn






    Please take a moment this morning to rememberand honor them, and all of our fallen brothers.

    just over an hour ago, Hawaii time , 68 years ago the attack was on.:X Sad time in American History, we were propelled into war . 4 years later on VJ day we celebrated Victory & peace for a short time. 416,000 American Hero's lost their lives in WW2. Yes, we need to reflect & remember the greatest generation , the sacrifices they all made both the living & the dead. Thank you for your service to this country.

    My Grandfather won the Silver Star that day. Here he is putting the Army Wreath on the USS Arizona in 1958.

    Here's some interesting reading from the After Action Reports of Bombing Six and Scouting Six, that arrived Oahu during the second wave of attacks, in advance of USS Enterprise CV-6 return from Wake. (Carrier was approx 175 miles West of Oahu at the time of teh attack on Pearl Harbor)
