Happy Fourth of July!
Dr. Sam is taking a break from the blog in order to spend the Fourth with family and friends.
I thought my readers might enjoy seeing some pics I posted two years ago after visiting Pearl Harbor. I got to see the “Bookends,” the two ships representing the beginning and the end of World War II. The ships are the Arizona and the Missouri.
I am also sharing a picture of the gift I received during that visit. It came from the folks at the Mighty Mo’s gift shop. The gift was given to me because I served in the U.S. Army as a Sgt E-5 (never saw combat). The gift shop did that for all veterans who visited the ship. Getting that gift meant a lot.
Overall, the visit to Pearl Harbor was a moving and memorable experience.
As we celebrate July 4th, let us remember that freedom is never free. Let’s especially remember those who served and are now serving to keep us all safe. Let us especially remember those who gave their all for their country. Happy 4th of July.
