No mention of Pearl Harbor; don’t forget it

Published: Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

The SV Weekend dated Dec. 7-8 failed to mention a remembrance of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where 2,400 U.S. servicemen were killed and 21 ships were sunk or heavily damaged.

How could you forget? “Remember Pearl Harbor.”

The servicemen that were at “Pearl” that day will never forget those planes with the big red ball on the sides.

Note to readers: Harold D. Johnson is a World War II veteran.
