Lest We Forget - A Day Which Will Live In Infamy!

It was once said by Edmund Burke that "Those who do not know history are destined to repeat it". Let us not forget this fateful day in our history which transformed a generation of Americans into the Greatest Generation by their actions taken there after to preserve our way of life.

We need to teach and remind our younger generations how and why our Great Nation was formed and persevered up to now.

Unfortunately just like other fateful days in our Nations history as time passes the dates just become another day with no significant meaning. You can see it already happening with 9-11 as we whitewash the events as if by not recognizing them for what they are that it will just go away.

As an example, just check Google out. No mention of it today, yet thru the year plenty of odd dates are celebrated. Hmmm???

Real Shame!

If you see a Veteran today, thank them for all their sacrifices!

GOD Bless our Greatest Generation!

Les

Thank you very much for that message. You are right, little by little dates that have made and changed our History and way of life have been set aside and forgotten, or as you said, white washed. We need to remember these dates as they are part of what makes us what we are today. I salute all my Fellow Veterans today, and thank you for your individual sacrifice and services to the Greatest Nation in the World, the United States of America.

X3 It's a shame important dates are becoming forgotten, but national cookie day could make the evening news. Our thanks to all veterans!

Perhaps the most humbling day of my life so far was when I had the recent priviledge of meeting and talking to one of the few remaining survivors of Iwo Jima. I salute and thank every one of our veterans and serving men and women for making my life better than it would have been without their efforts and sacrifices.
