    Pearl Harbor. December 7, 1941. G-d Bless Our Vets.

    Only 1 million of the 16 million Americans who served in World War II still live.

    Let us not forget to remember our Vets today.

    Couple relevant things to share:

    THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods… — Thomas Paine, “The Crisis”
    Opening quote to an excellent post by Codrea:

    As much as I cannot stand the dailymail site:

    Could you imagine FDR saying, 'We were attacked yesterday on Pearl Harbor. I really don't want to talk about who did it?' Republicans rip into Obama's tone-deaf terrorism speech (Huckabee)
