I recently had the opportunity to receive and review Craig Shirley's book, December 1941: The Month that Changed America and the World. Here is the link to my review. http://chatwithvera.blogspot.com/2011/12/december-1941-month-that-changed.html Along the same line, I published a post on my blog of Mr. Shirley's Washington Post article debunking myths of Pearl Harbor. Here is that link: http://chatwithvera.blogspot.com/2011/12/5-myths-debunked-about-pearl-harbor-by.html I lost an uncle in WWII - he was an Army officer in the Army Air Corp and was an instructor. His plane crashed. I had two other uncles who fought in Europe. I had a cousin who is an Army veteran of the war in Vietnam. My two brothers served in the Army one in Germany and the other as a reservist. I have a son-in-law who is an Army Chaplain now. Today, December 7, is Pearl Harbor remembrance day.
