As the oil still seeps from the sunken hulk of the Battleship USS Arizona, also too does our thoughts and remembrances still linger of the day it was sunk – December 7th, 1941. For me, I take this moment to not only reflect on the sacrifices of the honorable men and women during World War II, and all the fallen Americans in the wars before and since, but also the tragic loss to millions of people who had to carry on without their family members that did not return home.
I thank you for taking a few moments to pause and reflect on those still with us who lived through that infamous day and also, too, the family and friends aboard the Hawaii Clipper – a very possible early target in the days leading up to World War II. God bless you, our nations’ service men and women, and all those who perished in acts of aggression against our great country.
