Today is December 7th.  On this day 69 years ago, at 7:53 a.m. and 8:55 a.m., the Japanese conducted a surprise attack on the United States at Pearl Harbor.  2,403 service men were killed that day.  We must not forget their sacrifice, nor the ones who survived.

Take time today to remember.  Be sure to thank a veteran or someone in active service to our country.  The veterans have been there, and those on active duty now stand ready to give the ultimate sacrifice at a moment’s notice so we can remain free.

Thank you all veterans and service men and women, past and present.  We owe you a debt that can never be repaid.
