"Pearl Harbor" is posted by "YellowStoneFly" of the "Idaho Fly Fishers Blog" today, Pearl Harbor Day. 70 years ago today, these photos were apparently taken by a GI in Honolulu on that fateful day. Supposedly they were found in an old foot locker in a "Brownie" camera. Amazing! The photographer is unknown or I would gladly give him/her the proper credit. Click on them and enlarge for effect. In the second photo, you can actually see a Japanese fighter plane as it attacks.
The figures vary significantly, but one source claims the US military deaths during WWII were 416,800. About 600,000 of our soldiers were wounded in action as well. These men and women fought for our freedom. We should never lose sight of their sacrifices under any circumstances--military or political. Socialism is not the way. Just look at what happened to the USSR and now to many European countries. They are being destroyed from within due to their socialistic "big governments".
Fly fish Idaho soon.
