(Gettysburg quote for Dec 7? Some people are too creative with memes)

God bless America. I'm grateful for the sacrifices of those who have and still defend America.

The attack on Pearl Harbor will soon pass out of living memory and soon will become something only read about in history books. Even now, it is just ancient history to some.

Yet to us old enough to remember, and to most of us here who were born not too long after the war, it is something we have grown up with.

The sailors, and soldiers, and airmen who fought and won the war weren't just people in history books- they were our fathers, and uncles, and brothers; our little league coaches, and teachers, and neighbors.

These heroic men hosted cocktail parties, and Fourth of July barbeques, and Christmas parties, and handed out Halloween candy, and bowled in leagues, and sold us groceries. They were the fabric of our lives and we never knew them for their heroism.

And soon they will all be gone and we owe them a debt that cannot be repaid.
