Yesterday was the 72nd year of Pearl Harbor when our precious sailors were brutally attacked. How did YOU commemorate Pearl Harbor?

On December 7, 1991, I was in Hawaii on a three week vacation. One of the reasons I went was to take note of the anniversary. The highlight of the trip was a visit to the Arizona Memorial, this coincided with a visit by President George H.W. Bush to Oahu to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the attack. On that day in Honolulu, I met with survivors, following them to the bars, listening to each of the guys proudly say where they were personally when the bombs fell. They kept me in drinks and revelry the whole time I was with them. I took a few photos with the Kodak. Many have passed away since, but at the time it was a memorable experience.
This December 7, 1941 was the wakeup call for my father's generation like November 22, 1963 was for mine. We were approximately the same age when these relative events took place

Another reason that I distrust conservatives, (GOP) domestic spending is pinch penny, while they turn a blind eye to DOD wasting money like it grows on trees. Add this to their cover up and subsequent embarrassment, and I ask what makes THEM the sacred cow? As a progressive type, I consider THIS...
