70 years ...

Dad-in-law Fixer signed up the very next day and so did millions of other young men. He was lucky and came home in one piece. Many others didn't. Remember them today.

When Pearl Harbor was hit, my dad was in the Aleutian Islands with the Arkansas' National Guard, one of my uncles was already in the occupation of Iceland, another uncle was Claire Chennault's chief diesel mechanic in China and my step father was a draftee on a ship to the Philippines.

Yeah, I remember Pearl Harbor.

None of them had a "good" war. None of them was treated decently by our government after the war even though they had served the whole time in the war.
