God bless every single one of them. Past, present and future.
I always make sure that Dec 7th, in my classroom, is devoted to this day. Show films, discuss details, talk about patriotism. Does not matter what else is going on. This is important and people need to remember.

Fortunately I was able to take a vacation to Hawaii and visit Pearl harbor and the USS Arizona. If you ever get the chance, it is worth it!

The men who fought and survived were a special breed. I remember growing up, the neighbor 2 doors down was captured in the fall of the Philippines. He was also a survivor of the Bataan Death March. Every morning he would raise the flag in his yard and every evening lower it, with a recording of TAPS playing. He would not talk to anyone about what he endured. I can still remember seeing him one day without a shirt on. 20+ years after his liberation, the scars on his back were still vivid. I found out in later years, the scars were from repeated beatings with bamboo by the Japanese. I shudder thinking of what he went through. I've wished many times over the years, I had taken the time to thank him for what he endured for this country. While I can't tell him, I never fail to thank a WWII Vet when I see one now.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
