Today more than ever we need to remember the sacrifices caused by WAR. What IS IT good for? ~~dru~~

In Saner Thought

75 years ago day……

Today we commemorate the “Day of Infamy”…..the Japanese attack on our naval base at Pearl Harbor….they also attacks a few other installations but Pearl Harbor was the biggie for them……the day we entered into the conflict known as “World War 2″…….

Please take a moment and remember those brave men, 2403 total, that gave their lives on this day……they should NEVER be forgotten!

We are also in the middle of commemorating the 100 years that it has been since the start of another “Great War”….World War One…the war that gave us the world we now live in……

The world as we know it today began with the 1st World War…..and sadly…not much has changed…..

As this year closes out I want to remember the horrible battles and the massive deaths of that war and that year, 1916…..the Battle of the Somme, Verdun, the Alps, etc…….

Only the last seemed to have no obvious fraternity with the Washington set.

The commission conducted only two to three days of hearings in Washington. Admiral Standley, arriving late, was startled by the inquiry’s chummy atmosphere. Admiral Harold Stark and General Marshall were asked no difficult or embarrassing questions. Furthermore…

Today is the Day, a few years after this post originated but I found it informative and respectful and wish to reblog were others do it better than me. Take a moment of silence for the World and for our Vets. ~~dru~~

Dedicated to my once best friend, who finally deserted me on “Pearl Harbor Day” but it took me years to realize it for sure and to finally realize not only was it for the best….it was a VERY good thing.    ~~dru~~
