Pearl Harbor

by Chris | December 7th, 2010

Marv is about 89.  You can always find him in the front row of my church.  Every conversation with him is filled with humorous stories and lessons learned of days gone by.  He’s always got a life lesson to tell you, usually about God’s amazing grace and mercy.

Donald is my father-in-law, he just turned 90.  Most of his days revolve around watching the Dodgers and Fox News.  He’s more reserved.  I’ve never heard him talk about it, but what Don and Marv have in common is that they both have Pearl Harbor experience.  Marv was in Pearl Harbor when it was attacked, while Don’s unit was sent there shortly after the attack.  They are part of only between 2,000 to 4,000 still alive from that time.

Both of these men have lived full lives.  Both of these men have lived honorable lives!

This can hardly be said of most folks today.  Our nations “leaders” are pathetic excuses of men, our culture honors disgraceful men.  The closest thing to these honorable men of yesteryear are the brave and selfless young men and women of today who are still willing to live for honor.

To the honorable men of yesteryear and to those few of today … I salute you this Pearl Harbor Day!
