December 7, 1941 was a Sunday morning like most until the radio's began to crackle with the news of Pearl Harbor. There are pockets of these National Cemeteries across the country. I recommend you visit one this month and just read the names of people who allowed you to live in an era of peace. It should be required reading for any American History class.
This small National Cemetery is in Greenville, TN along with the grave of the 17th President, Andrew Johnson.
