    One of the most somber moments of my career was standing over the USS Arizona and watching the oil bubbles rise up from the wreckage. It was like watching the wreck shed both drops of its blood and shed a tear for the bodies she holds in her embrace that are entombed within her all at the same time. Each bubble rising to the surface to break open then dissipate as the water slowly carried it away while the oily ring grew larger and larger.

    Celebrate Pearl Harbor Day by picking up a copy of Time Magazine, just out today, naming a draft dodger "Person of the Year."

    My grandfather served in World War II and he died on the date of Pearl Harbor in 1994. This date holds so much importance for me, not only for my grandfather's passing, but for history as well. I can't help, but cry and feel sad because there were so many men, women and children that died that day.

    I remember my mother telling me that she was supposed to be in a school play right around that date, and it was cancelled because of it. She must've been about 10. Seems like every generation has some big thing like that. My grandmother remembered hearing about the Titanic when she was little, and for me it was JFK's assassination.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    I have never been across the way
    Seen the desert and the birds
    You cut your hair short
    Like a shush to an insult
    The world had been yelling
    Since the day you were born
    Revolting with anger
    While it smiled like it was cute
    That everything was shit.

    For myself it was the Tonkin gulf

    Here.

    Known as the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. It escalated the Vietnam war into high gear. This happened a year before I joined the Navy,and it sped up the draft because more troops were needed. So kind of my own personal reason to join rather than wait to be drafted.

    Re: Not offically a holiday,but Dec 7,a day that will live in infamy

    It's funny the things we retain in our memories. I don't recall Tonkin Gulf but I recall Thresher (1963) and Scorpion (1968) and the news coverage to a degree. Kennedy is just a hick-up in my memory which is ironic I suppose when you consider his assassination was November of 1963 and the USS Thresher was lost in April of 1963, yet I was only 5 at the time. Guess subs made more of an impact on me.

    But then again in reflection it seems at times the entirety of the 1960's and early 1970's is all one large event. 5th street baptist blurs into the March from Selma to Montgomery and right into the speech in D.C. along with all the Freedom Rider encounters along the way. Not the same but blurring into the same violence and struggles that marked the Black Panthers, the SLA and Patty Hurst incident as it all seemed to mark the decade. In so many ways appearing as if the country was at war in South East Asia but also at war within itself. The only thing missing was the hard nosed dying remnants of McCarthyism and the communist red scare. Yet even that continued in some capacity as an influence upon the US involvement in the war and the Cold War in general though people historically show its hard nosed aspects die about 1956.

    I remember the Thresher,I think I was in 9th or 10th grade then. I think I was all of 16.
