Jane and I attended a home school curriculum fair in Kansas City several weeks ago. While there met a teen who had a burden to interview veterans of all wars. Visiting with him, I learned that he had arranged a public meeting featuring four survivors of Pearl Harbor...which happened yesterday in Olathe, Ks.
Jacob and I attended, and had the honor of meeting and listening to three military survivors (one could not attend due to illness) as well as a woman who was a six-year-old on that "date which shall live in infamy."
It was an privilege to attend, and all were articulate, insightful, and occasionally humorous.
Two of the men made a career of the military; closing out their active duty in Vietnam. Both these men were under fire exactly twice...Dec 7, 1941 and once in Vietnam.
