Before I called the people who honor that great ship and her heroic crew, morons and simpletons, I think I would pause and contemplate what today might be like for all of us if that ship and it's crew, and all the other ships and crews had not been there to protect us from the Japanese war machine. You, and all the rest of us could be speaking Japanese today.
I don't know this for a fact, but I would guess that you were not even alive during that time, and thus have no idea what things were like.
I salute all of the men and women who served in that awful war, and I feel nothing but gratitude for their commitment and their sacrifice.
