Hopefully everyone will get to visit the memorial at least once in their lifetimes.

Do Freedom of Information Act Files Prove FDR Had Foreknowledge of Pearl Harbor?: Newsroom: The Independent Institute

FDR knew. We could have been waiting for them.

Fascinating book from a lifetime of research.

History repeats itself over and over. Gulf of Tonkin attack never happened, 58000 Americans dead.

Remember the Liberty USS Liberty Memorial

Waving the flag just doesn't mean the same any more.

By msnbc.com staff and wire reports

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii -- Under calm skies 70 years to the day of the attack on Pearl Harbor, about 120 survivors gathered Wednesday to mark the anniversary with ceremonies that began with a moment of silence for the 2,400 Americans who lost their lives.

And towards the end, it came with an announcement that seemed inevitable: The Pearl Harbor Survivors Association will disband on Dec. 31.

Association President William Muehleib cited the age and poor health of remaining members.

"It was time. Some of the requirements became a burden," Muehleib said after the ceremony.

The association has 2,700 members but there are an estimated 7,000 to 8,000 Pearl Harbor survivors. Local chapters will function as long as they have members and survivors can gather socially, but they will no longer have a formal, national group that organizes an annual trip for the anniversary.

I don't have much of a bucket list, but this is near the top. Was going to go next year but daughter's graduation expenses got in the way and had to cancell.
