Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day!

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day!

“Yesterday, December 7, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”

– President Franklin D. Roosevelt

There is a beautiful lagoon in the Hawaiian Islands that is named for the lustrous jewel that is formed when a piece of sand irritates a clam into coating it to protect itself. This harbor also houses the headquarters of the United States Pacific Fleet, and has been an important part of the American Naval placement in the Pacific Ocean since 1887. Little did anyone know at that time that an attack on this harbor would bring the entire might of the American Military into a war it was desperately seeking to avoid. Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day honors the men and women who died in the Japanese attack on this beautiful harbor one December day in 1941.

History of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

The History of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is the history of the attack itself, an attack which took place on December 7th, 1941. The attack was devastating, killing over 2,400 citizens of the United States from the time it began at 7:48am Hawaiian time and ended just 90 minutes later, making the attack incredibly devastating. Multiple ships were lost during the attack, though things could have been much worse.

Intelligence gathered after the attack indicated that there was intended to be a third-wave of attacks to hit the island, complete with an invasion fleet intended to take the island and prevent it from being used as an American base of operation. The purpose behind this surprise attack? America was well positioned in the Pacific to interfere with Japanese fleet maneuvering, and it was hoped that by launching this assault they would cripple the US Pacific Presence and be able to control the ocean unhindered.

How to celebrate Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

Celebrating Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is your opportunity to show your support for those veterans who are still alive from the Pearl Harbor bombing, and pay your respect to those who give themselves in service to our country and its security every day. All over the US there are ceremonies to honor these men and women along with the rest of the surviving WWII veteran’s, of which there were 855,070 in 2016. Servicemen all over the world deserve the respect of their countrymen, and the war affected us all, so even if you aren’t American, pay your respects to those who serve.

Nothing I can add —

Thanks for your Service! 

 

Yours in Patriotism,

A Veterans Letter to McCain: TRUMP IS RIGHT

Trump is right!  “… McCain was “extremely disrespectful to the thousands upon thousands of people, many of whom happen to be his constituents, that came to listen to me speak about illegal immigration in Phoenix last week by calling them ‘crazies.’”
“Crazies” was, in fact, a term McCain used in response to Trump’s Phoenix rally, during which the Republican presidential contender invited a man whose son was killed by an undocumented immigrant to join him on stage, doubling down on the crusade against illegal immigration…”

Dear Naomi, 
Please tell the senator that I would wish he not run for office ever again. Please give him a copy of this letter-it is meant for him, even though you are the only one I know that can reach him.
I will not vote for him, and many of my veteran buddies will no longer do so either. There are many reasons for this, but the biggest is that he has incompetent advisers. If that is not the case, as he gets older he is developing some problems with his thinking ability!
As a fellow Vietnam veteran with a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star I do respect his military service. However, I might be crazy, but the millions of other people backing  Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Ben Carson are not. 
I’m sick of all of the politicians-among the crop of politicians only Cruz (and a few others) have the balls to stand up for America and the American Citizen.  Both Carson and Trump are real people that have had to have real life experiences with all of the struggles the politicians stick us with.
Trump is 100% correct when he says, “ McCain was “extremely disrespectful to the thousands upon thousands of people, many of whom happen to be his constituents, that came to listen to me speak about illegal immigration in Phoenix last week by calling them ‘crazies.’”
I realize Mr and Mrs McCain and their family do not have to shop were we regular people do, but when Arizona passed laws that reinforced the federal laws to protect all the citizens of all ethnic backgrounds from the illegal alien, our shops once again became normal with relative clean rest rooms, and the display shelves neat and not strewn into disarray.  After Obama and Holder took our states rights away by letting the illegal alien resume his infiltration of our state, everything sucks again!
I challenge the senator and his wife to come to our Ross’s in Prescott and find it neat after the hordes of illegals come through.
I realize much of south of the border do not have flush toilets, but why won’t the smugglers (or the respective embassies) tell their charges about flushing a toilet. Most adult American citizens whether black, hispanic or white flush!  Why can’t the illegal?
I’m not sure I can blame the illegals from Mexico.  After many trips to Encinitas, Plaza Santa Maria and Tijuana (as well as Mexico City and Ixtapan), the people were always pleasant, and all of the places I frequented were like  places in the USA, having flush toilets!?!  So either Trump was correct again, when he said Mexico sends its worst, or else these illegals causing the problem are from other parts of the world?
I don’t want to bring up the murders, the drunken “illegal” drivers, the “illegal” wrong-way drivers and the rapes and child molestations by “illegals” Neither do I want to bring up the 650,000 crimes committed in Texas, alone, by “illegals.”  Just know the senator’s claim that Americans are crazy for agreeing with Trump, shows he is the most out of touch person for not knowing what is going on in his realm of responsibility, the state of Arizona!
One final thought: We the people are not blind  We see the charade you establishment rupugnants are pulling.  Ted Cruz needs to run the senate! Obviously, Obama has some dirt on McConnell because Obama gets everything he wants from him and Boner or Bohner or however he spells his weak-kneed name.  I can’t believe his father ran a bar.  He is such a pussy!
You political shysters can come after me if you want.  I have nothing, so I have nothing to lose!  Also, if you do come after me there is about 20 or 30 million more of me that are sick and tired of watching this willing destruction of our once great nation!  Either open your eyes and do what we elected you to do, or get out of the way so someone with brains and balls can start to fix this mess most in the senate and house OF BOTH PARTIES created!
I thank God for the Ben Carson’s, Don Trump’s, Ted Cruz’s and the handful of others that are trying to save our country while the demonrats and repugnants are selling out our beloved America!  In the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Sincerely,
Al Battista
PS
Yes! I’m mad.  My Italian relatives have been fighting for the USA since WW I, All of my uncles paid a price in WW II. My greatest uncle fought with Patton during WW II, then paid the ultimate price in Korea.  My blood was minimal in Vietnam, mostly because, as Trump said, “it was a stupid war!” That war was won 4 times by the American troops and their Vietnamese allies.  Stupid politicians threw those 4 victories away just like Obama threw our Iraq victory away!  Do you understand why we no longer want stupid politicians running things.  That is why we need Ben Carson and Don Trump!  WE WILL TAKE ANYBODY, WITH LIFE EXPERIENCE, THAT IS NOT A SLICK, SMOOTH TALKING POLITICIAN!
