Today is Pearl Harbor Day. It was apparent on Sept 11, 2001 that we did not learn the lesson from Dec 7, 1941. Have we yet? Probably not. Be that as it may, today we honor the service people who fought and died on that fateful day 70 years back.
As a veteran of both the "Coastie" service and Naval Reserve I would point out that the Coast Guard was also in action that day. The USCGC Taney was moored at nearby Honolulu Harbor and participated in the defensive action. Today she is moored in Baltimore as a museum ship. A relic and a reminder.
