Somehow, I never really made the connection until now that the attack on Pearl Harbor occurred in December, so close to Christmas. It somehow makes it a little more poignant to think of all the servicemen who lost their lives, and their families back home who were probably getting Christmas packages ready to send before they heard the news.
For all those who have served or are currently serving in the military, thank you for all you are doing.
