Remembering Pearl Harbor Day

Sixty-eight years ago today, Japanese Naval aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor and surrounding Army and Marine air bases on the islands of Hawaii, precipitating America’s entry into World War II. From an article in Sunday’s Houston Chronicle about the addition of a Japanese Navy mini-sub to the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredricksburg, Texas (birthplace of Adm. Chester Nimitz):

The youngest of the World War II veterans are now in their 80s and it’s estimated less than 1 million Pacific war combatants, primarily from the Navy and Marine Corps, are alive.


I think I’d like to visit that museum.
