My granfather died when I was pretty young. Younger than 10 anyhow. One thing I remember clearly about him was that he was missing a fingernail. Just never grew back. He was in a prisoner of war camp, I believe in the phillipines. Not too sure off the top of my head.
The point is that this is the 62nd anniversary of pearl harbor. Remember that? Over 2000 people, mostly servicemen, died that day. Alot of people bitched and moaned about us joining the war. They said alot of the same things that are being said today about the war in Iraq.
Everyone should take a moment and say a prayer for all of our servicemen and women of the present, as well as the past.
