    Default December 7, 1941. A date that shall live in infamy.

    Today is December 7, 2011. Today I hold, in deep reverence, TWO men. One I met and knew for 15 years.

    One I never met.

    Both hero's.

    Peter V. Langbehn, my grandfather, was born 12/7/10. He worked full-time at his business by day. Built munitions on The Rock Island Arsenal by night, during. WWII.

    He was MY hero. Shared with only a few close friends.

    The other, my great-uncle. MM2C Archie T. Miles. Uncle Archie died, along with 428 other brave men aboard the USS Oklahoma on 12/7/41. A man of humble origins, who was lost, forever, the day the world changed that terrible Sunday morning. Archie,

    I'm proud to share him as an American hero, with you, my friends. And the country.

    God Bless BOTH of these men. God Bless America & all who have & still serve her.

    Your Uncle's sacrifice will be remembered. And let us all remember December 7, 1941.

    Although no one in my family perished on Dec 7 1941 several were in the service over the next 4 years. My fathers best friends body never being found. Ironically my father was buried on this day in 1999. Never forget 12-7-41 !
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    My grandparents were married on this day. My grandfather then immediatly sign for service, spending the next four years in Italy. Talk about a honeymoon.

    God bless the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

    Amen. The day that changed the course of history. God Bless the brave souls who were lost and those who lived to tell the stories of that fateful day and those of the battles to come.
