~The FReeper Canteen Presents~

Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, A Day Which Will Live In Infamy

 September 1940. The U.S. placed an embargo on Japan by prohibiting exports of steel, scrap iron, and aviation fuel to Japan, due to Japan's takeover of northern French Indochina.

April 1941. The Japanese signed a neutrality treaty with the Soviet Union to help prevent an attack from that direction if they were to go to war with Britain or the U.S. while taking a bigger bite out of Southeast Asia.

June 1941 through the end of July 1941. Japan occupied southern Indochina. Two days later, the U.S., Britain, and the Netherlands froze Japanese assets. This prevented Japan from buying oil, which would, in time, cripple its army and make its navy and air force completely useless.

Toward the end of 1941. With the Soviets seemingly on the verge of defeat by the Axis powers, Japan seized the opportunity to try to take the oil resources of Southeast Asia. The U.S. wanted to stop Japanese expansion but the American people were not willing to go to war to stop it. The U.S. demanded that Japan withdraw from China and Indochina, but would have settled for a token withdrawal and a promise not to take more territory.



Prior to December 1941, Japan pursued two simultaneous courses: try to get the oil embargo lifted on terms that would still let them take the territory they wanted, and to prepare for war.

The Japanese military was asked to devise a war plan. They proposed to sweep into Burma, Malaya, the East Indies, and the Philippines, in addition to establishing a defensive perimeter in the central and southwest Pacific.

They expected the U.S. to declare war but not to be willing to fight long or hard enough to win. Their greatest concern was that the U.S. Pacific Fleet, based in Pearl Harbor could foil their plans. As insurance, the Japanese navy undertook to cripple the Pacific Fleet by a surprise air attack.

The U.S. had broken the Japanese diplomatic code and knew an attack was imminent. A warning had been sent from Washington, but it arrived too late.

Early warning radar was new technology. Japanese planes were spotted by radar before the attack, but they were assumed to be a flight of American B-17s due in from the West Coast.

On December 7th 1941, on an otherwise peaceful Sunday morning on a beautiful Hawaiian island, the first wave of Japanese airplanes left 6 aircraft carriers and struck Pearl Harbor a few minutes before 8 AM local time.



In two waves of terror lasting two long hours, they killed or wounded over 3,500 Americans and sank or badly damaged 18 ships - including all 8 battleships of the Pacific Fleet - and over 350 destroyed or damaged aircraft. At least 1,177 lives were lost when the Battleship U.S.S. Arizona exploded and subsequently sank.

However, they did not sink any of our Pacific aircraft carriers and they left most of the fuel that was needed to win the war in the Pacific.

The Japanese attack brought the U.S. into the war on December 8—and brought it in the war determined to fight to the finish.

Little Things
December 7, 2010

A medical school program in New York gives students who are training for geriatric medicine a unique opportunity. They experience life as nursing home residents for 10 days. They learn some of the struggles of maneuvering a wheelchair and being raised out of bed with a lift, as well as reaching the shower bar from a seated position. One student learned how little things counted for a lot—like lowering nameplates on doors so that patients can find their rooms more easily, or putting the TV remote in a reachable location.

Although the students still can’t fully relate, they will be better able to serve the elderly in their future work.

Sometimes God gives us the opportunity to use the lessons we’ve learned and the comfort He’s given us during difficult times to help others in special ways. Paul indicated this when he wrote: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble” (2 Cor. 1:3-4).

Are you using the lessons you’ve learned in your trials to touch the lives of others? Remember—even little things can mean a lot.

The comfort God has given us
He wants us now to share
With others who are suffering
So they will sense His care. —Sper

God doesn’t comfort us to make us comfortable;
He comforts us to make us comforters.

Read: 2 Corinthians 1:3-7

The Father of mercies and God of all comfort . . . comforts us in all our tribulation. —2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Bible in a year:
Daniel 5-7; 2 John

Evening Lauren and thanks for tonight's Canteen!

My dad often spoke of Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor and after having served in the pacific during WWII, he never did forgive the Japanese; it was a tough time for America!

Anyone that goes to the Arizona Memorial @ Pearl simply MUST walk across the parking lot and also tour the USS Bowfin submarine and museum.......highly under-publicized, but well worth the extra hour or so.

I picked up my first ship in the Philippines and after a trip to Australia and New Zealand we preceded to our homeport of Pearl Harbor, HI. We arrived during the filming of Tora, Tora, Tora and it was almost overwhelming to see Japanese Zeros flying over us as we entered the channel. I was unaware that the film was being made ... an experience I will never forget. LOL!

Good evening, Army Bro!

Your dad's attitude pretty much sets it out - I agree with him 100%.

"On Navy down the field - fight our battle cry-y-y-y!
We'll never give an inch, so Army Mule steer shy-y-y-y!
Roll up the score, Navy, Anchors Aweigh!
Until we meet once more we'l sink the Army, sink the Army Grey!!!!"

I once had the honor of being the One Woman Band to entertain the 55th reunion of a regional group of Pearl Harbor Survivors.

I started out with Glenn Miller and stuff like that, but they requested more Rock & Roll.

Wonderful Bunch of People!

And not a SINGLE Mitsubishi in the Parking Lot.

I LOVE the USS Bowfin! I have been on it quite a few times. Is The Gentleman who used to host the tours still on Duty? (One of the original crewmen).

REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!





Sfc. Barry E. Jarvis, USA, 1st Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), KIA Afghanistan 29NOV2010




I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)


God Of Our Fathers



Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

They were the coolest bunch of men!
They all wore Hawaiian shirts, and leis around their necks, and danced every dance.

One man was a Veteran of WW2, Korea, AND Vietnam.

I once had the honor of being the One Woman Band to entertain the 55th reunion of a regional group of Pearl Harbor Survivors.

Awesome!

I started out with Glenn Miller

I like Glenn Miller. Which of his songs can you play?
