Tuesday we once again passed the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. This sneak attack by the Japa- nese was 69 years ago. To many of us who remember, it seems not nearly that long ago. We will always remem- ber the 1,177 sailors who are still en- tombed in the battleship Arizona. And we think of the more than 2,400 others killed that day, and the almost 1,200 wounded. The Japanese had no idea of how the United States citizens would react. Almost immediately our young men and women began signing up for some branch of the military. Many were the numbers who went to work in defense plants. Before a lot of months passed, our military was ready to give back to the Japanese some of their own medi- cine. Our ground troops fought many battles in the outlaying islands where the enemy was dug in and our air force dropped many bombs on their ships on the islands and on Tokyo itself. This writer knows about some of that as my husband did his share in these bomb runs with his B-24. All branches of our military did their share and we must thank each and everyone of them, who had a part in making the Japanese say "enough."
