I'm not trying to touch off a political debate here; no words erase the horrible memories of that day. Just thought I'd toss in my small contribution. Next stop for me: Normandy! Gotta go there before I cash it in. Anybody on the board been there?

Thanks for posting this remembrance on the board. I too have visited the Arizona Memorial, and was both humbled and awed. It is truly a reverent place. I hope to visit again in the next few years. It is interesting that the anniversary fell this year on Sunday, just like that fateful day. I wonder how often that has happened in the past 62 years.
Like others on the board, I still hope to visit Normandy some day, although I think I may lose it walking among the graves of so many of our brethren who gave their lives for our way of life.
Always say thanks to a vet, any vet. But particularly say thanks to those who fought in Vietnam. Whether you agree or disagree with how that war was handled, the guys on the ground put themselves in harms way under some pretty ugly conditions, and generally were shunned when they returned. One of the favorite pieces I have in my collection is a sidearm carried by a Ranger friend of mine in Vietnam. It isn't worth much monetarily, but he sacrificed both of his legs bringing it and himself back home.
