Cis: Hey, Anyone Remember Pearl Harbor?

Cis: I just got finish reading all the post. And of course read DFO's post for this wild card. No one, mention what day this is. guess for those under 40 don't care or it isn't a big deal for them. Only for us over 50. IT IS THE 65TH YEAR SINCE PEARL HARBOR WAS BOMBED. ... Guess most think of it as just yesterdays news...

Jesse Tinsley: My mother was a toddler living in Hawaii when Pearl Harbor was bombed. She lived on the windward side and my grandmother went out and pulled her inside and hid while the bombing went on at the base on the leeward side. My Uncle Joe was a civilian employee at Pearl and worked there for three days straight cleaning up the mess after the bombing.

DFO: Sorry, Cis; I thought about posting something yesterday to alert HBOers to this important anniversary. But forgot. Which brings up a good question. Will the anniversary of Pearl Harbor be remembered 10 years from now. Or is it an observance that will pass when all of the "Greatest Generation" does?
