As I'm sure most of you know, this is the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. I didn't have any relatives there, but when I was researching my World War II novels several years ago I talked to some veterans who were there that day, as well as participating in such pivotal battles as Midway and the Coral Sea. Fascinating, horrifying, inspiring stuff. And talking to those gentlemen made me very grateful that they were there so decades later a scribbler like me can write about those events. Hats off to them all.
