This year, we went to Wings Over Houston – advertised as one of the top five air shows in the country. Sadly, my 4 year old really only wanted to go in the bouncy house, but I loved it. The best part was a reenactment of the attack on Pearl Harbor called Tora Tora Tora. If you ever get a chance to see this, it’s worth the ticket price. It is extremely moving. I can not imagine the terror of that day. But I’m grateful to the men who had the wherewithal to shoot back.
Here’s a link to the 15 Medal of Honor recipients and their citations from that day. Only 5 survived the attack. And anyone who’s served knows that for every guy (or girl) that got an award, there are probably 100 more doing countless other acts of courage that went unseen.
I’m forever grateful to past, current and future service members. I appreciate your sacrifices. I honor your courage.
