Never Forget

Filed under: History,In Memoriam — williamthecoroner @ 11:57

Pearl Harbour.  1941.  There are still dead men trapped in the wreckage there, and men who never left hospital because of what happened on that day.

Never to forget.

  2. Pearl Harbor was a blessing in disguise….

    ….Tactically/Strategically, had the Japanese Fleet announced it’s prescence and challenged the US Navy of Dec. 1941 to a fair fight in deep water, the US navy would have lost decisively, with greater loss of life and ships irrevocably sunk. As it was, many of the sailors survived and many of the ships were raised/repaired.

    Politically, the decisive defeat of the US Navy and invasion/occupation of Hawaii would have been a much greater blow to the United States than the destruction of several battleships…. as it happened, the Sleeping Giant awakened, “filled with a terrible resolve.” The American People were united and committed to fight the Axis. Once that happened, the result was a foregone conclusion.
