December 7, 1941

Sixty-nine years ago today, on a quiet Sunday morning, American Armed Forces based in Honolulu were attacked by the Japanese Imperial Army, and the United States was drawn into World War II.

Most of us remember where we were and what we were doing at the moment of historic events. I know where I was, but not what I was doing because I was exactly two weeks old. Several years later, my father returned home from the Philippines, and I posed in his Army Air Corps dress hat.

For all veterans, past, present, and future: Thank you for your service.


  1. Amen, Thanks more than words can say.

    Excellent picture, too cute.

  2. Thank God we still remember this day. Thank you for your meaningful post and for sharing the cute picture of you.
