This week will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. I write novels set during the World War II era and am particularly interested in Pearl Harbor. I had a father and a step-father who served in World War II, the first being in the Marine Corps and the latter in the Navy and stationed in Pearl. December 7th is “a day that will live on in infamy” as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared and it certainly has. Every year on this day my focus is on all who lost their life serving our country. Let us not forget those brave men who served and the women who did as well whether in the military or as workers in plants, taking the place of husbands, fathers, boyfriends who had gone off to serve their country. December 7th is a day I will always remember.
