Rawles Remembers Pearl Harbor

From Survivalblog:

Tommorrow, December 7th, Americans remember the Imperial Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. On a Sunday morning, 68 years ago, we were the recipients of a well-planned and executed raid. According to an Internet history page: "The attack sank four U.S. Navy battleships (two of which were raised and returned to service later in the war) and damaged four more. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, and one minelayer, destroyed 188 aircraft, and caused personnel losses of 2,402 killed, and 1,282 wounded." This day is a reminder that the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.

Oh yeah, and Gods and Generals is just fine, but I'd warn you about Tae Guk Gi. Amazing film, but intensely gory.
