December 7th

December 7th, 1941 is a day much like September 11th, 2001.  They are days in our history that live in our hearts and minds.  70 years ago today we were attacked thrusting us into war with Japan.
At 12:30 PM on December 8th, 1941 President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered those words that we hear every year on this day in remembrance of the attack on Pearl Harbor;
Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
Much like the attacks on September 11th we should always remember those brave souls that died on December 7th at Pearl Harbor.  We should take the time to thank veterans of the Second World War, they are getting to be fewer and fewer each day.
Take some time today to reflect on just how good we all have it.  Sitting at our computer or smart phone reading blogs and going about our daily lives.
Today, as was the case 70 years ago, soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines lean forward doing our Nations bidding. Provoked or not, these brave men and women serve so we may have the Freedom that we enjoy.
As a Veteran that has served in armed conflict and lost some dear friends along the way.. every day to me is both Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
December 7th, 1941… a day that will live in infamy.

Have a Great Scouting Day!
