PEARL HARBOR -- DECEMBER 7TH

Today is the 70Th anniversary of the
bombing of Pearl Harbor. I was
only 5 years old when this happened.
My dad who fought in WWI wanted
to go once again and serve his country
but because of his having a family they
would not take him. His brother did
join up and fought in WWII. I remember
the rationing books, saving the tin foil
from chewing gum and the flags that
hung in the windows of the families that
had loved ones fighting in the war. I honor
all the service men and women who help
keep this country free. God Bless America.

This is a great post. Yesterday was a very sad day indeed. I remember my family talking about the rations and such. God bless all of our troops and all of those who have ever served or are serving now.
I love your inside and outside Christmas decorations. Everything looks lovely.
