Pearl Harbor: 70 Years Ago
Today, December 7, 2011, is the 70th Anniversary of the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor, a day that not only will live in infamy, but stirred a generation of Americans to defend this nation and step up to be its leaders, even after they led us to victory. They valiantly fought on the battlefield, and then valiantly fought on the Homeland to build the United States into the nation it is today; making sure it stands as the Greatest Nation on Earth! We look at the "Greatest Generation" with awe, and to hear a surviving member of this generation tell a story about their experiences is a memorable moment; something a good friend of mine just experienced.
"The 'Right' Solutions" would like to thank the "Greatest Generation" for their sacrifice and service to the United States and admire how they've influenced many in the following generations, to lead and defend. Their story has been written well, and it is my hope that the 9-11 Generation write a story just as memorable and awe-inspiring, and this can only be done by living up to the example set by the "Greatest Generation!"
