"If there hadn't have been a Pearl Harbor,
there wouldn't have been a Hiroshima."

Just keeping some perspective, ya know?

Great photos, man...and topical, too, seeing that Pearl Harbor Day has just passed recently.

God Bless and Keep "The Greatest Generation."

My dad was on R&R in a local hospital, along with a bunch of his civvie construction buddies (he was in a heavy truck company that dumped rock into the ocean, to extend a runway). After some confusion when the first planes hit, they piled into trucks to head to the harbor. They were met by Marines with fixed bayonets, and held for some time, then were formed into work parties.
He signed up with the Navy, and served aboard an LSM/R, which supported landings in the Pacific.

His memories of that day stayed with him all of his life.
