Subject: RE: BS: Pearl Harbor Day / December 7
Well, let us pause for a moment and try to remember those who sacrificed so much during World War 2. It was a time when it seemed as if the world was going to be conquered by the Nazis and their Fascist allies, that they were truly unstoppable.
It was years before our government informed the public that almost our entire Pacific Fleet, with the important exception of our aircraft carriers, was either badly damaged in the attack on Pearl Harbor or lying on the bottom of the bay.
