Remembering Pearl Harbor 65 Years Later
And we did finish the job. That’s why we call the “Greatest Generation,” the “Greatest Generation.”
Under far more difficult circumstances than we face today, against a much tougher enemy, with well more than a hundred times the lives lost, they persevered, preserved this nation’s freedom, destroyed our enemies, and paid the Japanese back in blood more than a hundred fold for what was done to our nation at Pearl Harbor. For that, even a thousand years from now, Americans will still be thanking them for their sacrifices, courage, wisdom, and determination.
