It's a date etched into my mind John... my son Craig was born 30 years ago today and Pearl Harbor was one of dates I became aware of all those years ago.
My dad was in the Royal Navy and served in Ceylon and Singapore... I have loads of photos and must share them one day. He was only seventeen.
By the way John Lennon gets shot tomorrow.

I wonder if the U.S. would have fought in WWII if Pearl Harbor hadn't been bombed. Just thinking about it.
