All the survivors are dying. I had an opportunity to thank a destroyer sailor with a Pearl Harbor sticker on his car for being there.

I told him that he made a vital contribution by striking back, and that prevented follow-on strikes by the japs. He said he never thought of it that way but that I was right.

I know what you mean about venting on the blog first; sometimes I do the same thing- talk about something on the blog. I'm always impressed by the way you resolve things.
