Every year at this time I always remember the activities which transpired 70 years ago today at Pearl Harbor.
My father was among the first who was drafted soon after the event. My life was changed since I was the oldest child who was left behind. Even while we were still huddled around the radio, trying to get more news about what had happened, I was given a list of instructions about what my new duties and responsibilities would be while he was gone into the service. That was a long time ago. However, I still remember the troop train leaving the little town nearby as scores of fathers and brothers were carried away. Many never returned to the little farm settlement. Even now I have no desire to forget those things. When I remember Pearl harbor I am always reminded about how quickly an ordered life can be changed forever.

Pearl Harbour and Amateur Radio

Wednesday saw the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbour attack, and some press stories commemorating the event mention the use of amateur radio in the months leading up to the attack.
An article written by Michael Evans for The Times newspaper and available from The Australian newspaper website says:
“There is strong evidence that the naval attache's office in Washington operates a short-wave sending and receiving set disguised as an 'amateur station' and that it is linked to the numerous ham stations known to be operated by Japanese on the West Coast and in Hawaii,”
Read The Australian article Pearl Harbor attack warnings 'were ignored'

Do you remember Pearl Harbor

It is that time of year again when our thoughts should return to the events which transpired on december 7, 1941. Do you personally remember that far back?

I DO remember Pearl Harbor Day. I was not born at the time, but I have an older sister whose birthday is December 7th. We always joke and say that our mother dropped a bomb that day, too.

As much of a tragedy as Pearl Harbour's attack was, it may have been the one thing needed to spur the United States into the war. We weren't doing enough before that. Sometimes you have to kick a person in the teeth for them to wake up, and Pearl Harbour was our wake up call.

Here is a link to FDR's reaction.

These photos are amazing. I was not born yet when this tragedy happened. I love history and have always wanted to visit the site in Hawaii where this happened.
