63 Years Ago...

These men took the first steps of the Greatest Generation's March to Greatness, just as their grandchildren make their own march today.

At 7:55AM, Pearl Harbor went from this...

To this...

To this...

To this...

To this.

Finally, those men and millions of men and women like them, forced this:

The representatives of the Emperor of Japan surrendering on the deck of the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.

This generation will do no less, as long as we let them!

So today, we honor the veterans and the fallen of Pearl Harbor.
