The attack on Pearl Harbor happened December 7th in 1941. This is a day that none of us should ever forget. We lost many brave men and woman on that day. It was a surprise strike on United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor by the Imperial Japanese Navy.
When I saw this video on YouTube I could not believe my eyes. I looked closely at the screen shots to see if this was a real Purple Heart. As much of a beating as the medal took from this punk kid, it clearly is a true medal.
Memorial Day is about remembering those who served and are no longer with us. I'd like to share a couple of men whom I will especially be thinking of this weekend. In fact, they are the men that put the "E" in Todd E. Lyons.
