have not , been reminding and informing all day , did you know ..there are 20 somethings that have never heard nor know nothing of this world changing event ? i did not , i expected everyone to know , i grew up that way , but alas we are now our fathers and the liberal education system has changed or at least re-written history ,

that same 20 something [whom im very fond of] knew we dropped the first A-bomb and where we dropped it but not why , or when and i spent a week enlightening him in august , had never heard we we were poised to invade japan , or what the losses were projected at ,they do not understand - thought we were always friends , does not know still of the POW issues and the bataan march - also the interments - that came up today , it made sense once i explained the losses at pearl , i have so much to share and the attention span is short with these kids ,

im also enlightening of the POW issues "here" , how different they were , how the germans we brought here wanted to stay in a few states [like idaho] and came back when they could,

im about to launch an education of the island hopping of the pacific , but i needed to allow the "first attack" to sink in , also the fact we were trying to stay neutral at the time in spite of having a bias ,
with the recent olympic discussions i may even get to explain what the german games did - particularly here , we shall see - that attention span thing is an issue

AS long as im expounding on this - 76 years ago , and firmly planted in my brain within a decade after , my family remembers , we are here because of the way events went , i will never apologize , my father never did , facts are facts and history is history even if liberals try to rewrite it ,

may i add there is a lack of understanding of our generation as well , VN is the next discussion i think i will have , only two in the office remember it today - im the oldest and i am surprised how much misconception there is , the current media is believed [the past media was far more accurate ] neither were honest with the americans that fought there - too much hollywood - too little truth ,
