Somebody tell Google and Yahoo it is Perl Harbor Day. Every year, on this special day, I always check google and yahoo to see if they have a clue. They don't. They'll put special home pages up for every cause under the sun, but for this -NOTHING!

I remember.

As contemptible as MSNBC may be, check out Bing. I never use Google anymore - ever.

When my Dad was in the Legion, they would have memorials on Dec 7. Every year this guy would parade out with his PH Vet hat, and get in front of all of the cameras. He was a boisterous man. Suffice it to say that he was not well liked.

I remember standing with my Dad and several of his friends. These friends had more medals on their chests than I could even imagine. They would look at this guy, and I heard one of them say, “He was a cook on the other side of the island. The only bomb he heard that day was on the radio.”

But, he had his “I was there” ticket punched, so they all shut up and let him take the limelight.

To all of the men and women who were really “there” you have my respect and I will remember those who never left “there” in my thoughts today.

And if you are in Manilla, stop by the American Cemetery and tell my Uncle and all of those there that we appreciate their sacrifice still.

The media seems to not only avoid mentioning Pearl Harbor Day but are starting to ignore 911 also.

If you ask the lefties, they will tell you that both tragic days were the fault of America.

My Dad (now departed) was an Ensign on board the Nevada that Sunday.

He taught his children (by example) outstanding moral courage, that right is right, to extend a charitable hand to those in need, to work hard, to love those in your charge, be spiritual, expect the best, prepare for the worst....and NEVER, EVER FORGET!

Thanks Dad!

It would be nice to have an e-mail address for Google, but they ‘conveniently’ left that off of their site.

Nothing on Drudge either. Most other sites don’t have anything about it either. It’s just “another” day....as the guys who fought in it die off sooner or later nothing will be remembered except in the history books.

No! Don’t tell them!

They’ll want to cobble together something honoring the Imperial Japanese Navy.

My mom says that on Pearl Harbor day, Dec ‘41-She was at a dance.

When the announcement was made, the music stopped, the people were silent. All the guys left and headed for the nearest recruiting office... literally. Her date (later my dad)also left the dance right away to enlist! She remembers this vividly.

I'm not the biggest fan of Microsoft, although I probably wouldn't have a job if it weren't for their products requiring so much hand-holding.

But I think you have to give them credit for not only commemorating this day, but putting up an inspirational pic. Seeing the Arizona memorial always brings tears to my eyes. Hope I can visit it in person one day - after the TSA is in the dustbin of history.

I was just going to post that! Bing is used here most of the time. Google ahs a few nice features but they can be worked around.

FWIW I insisted on running Pearl Harbor stories on the radio stations where I work. Don't know how many actually ran because there were some developing stories that took precident, at least in the news. I'm sure WJAS will run something throughout the day.

Not as much as I would prefer of course!

Goodsearch.com is a great search machine. They have the added feature of allowing you to name a charity, and every time you use the search engine, a few pennies goes into to the account of the charity you chose.

Second Amendment Sisters has received a couple of small checks from them as someone named us as their “charity”. I think it’s a good deal.....

Excellent first hand account of the Navy's recovery from the attack.
Highly recommended.

My father was an ensign on the USS Phoenix. He said it took them 30 minutes while under attack for the boilers to make enough steam to get under way. They were sitting ducks. However, since he was on a cruiser and the Japs were going for the battleships, they made it out of the harbor without a scratch. My father never spoke much about the war and only after he died that out curiosity that I researched the Phoenix’s role in WWII. It was quite a ship.

“My wall calendar says it’s the Islamic New Year... “

I read an article some time back stating that many calendars have replaced Pearl Harbor and other historical American events with Islamic religious holidays. I purchase Lang calendars and mine states: Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. (nothing else). After that article, I am very particular about the calendars I purchase. Just a thought.

***They’ll want to cobble together something honoring the Imperial Japanese Navy.***

42 years ago MAD or CRACKED magazine ran a page of cartoons about the changing movie attitudes toward the Japanese in WWII.

The one that really got to me was one showing Rosevelt bowing to Emperor Hirohito, apologizing for American ships blowing up and hurting the ears of Japanese pilots flying overhead.

Yes well, I usually get a German Shorthaired Pointer calendar as a yearly gift and this one is no different. It’s a little item that makes the giver happy because they think they’ve found something special for me, so I keep quiet. :)

But, I appreciate the info.

Somebody tell Google and Yahoo it is Perl Harbor Day

That's probably what they think. That, or PHP Harbor Day, or Python Harbor Day, or Ruby on Rails Harbor Day.

Yeah, it's a geek joke. Never mind.

". . . researched the Phoenix’s role in WWII. It was quite a ship."

And....they were quite a group of guys. IMHO, the best we can do is follow faithfully their example.

Or at least try to.
