    Surge Summary: Seventy-Nine years ago, a gruesome tragedy befell the United States in a perfidious attack on the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor. From that bleak moment, the nation stood up, fought back and won a war. Scandalously, too few of America’s young people appreciate the significant of that moment or of the national response to it.

    [December 7th] mark[ed] the 79th anniversary of the Japanese attack on the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor.  Sadly, many children today do not have a clue about the significance of Pearl Harbor Day.  This is a great time to speak to your children and grandchildren about the Greatest Generation and what it took to win World War II.

    When America’s involvement in World War II began, there wasn’t much good news.  There was defeat after defeat, retreat after retreat.  Americans who lived through those dark days experienced something that no generation since has experienced — the fear that we might lose the war and lose our freedom.

    Much has changed since Pearl Harbor and World War II.  But human nature and the precarious position of liberty have not changed.

    It is sad and dangerous that so many young Americans (other than those wearing the uniform) are more interested in condemning their country and second-guessing previous generations than they are in understanding what happened on this day 79 years ago and how each generation must defend liberty.

    But as long as God gives me breath, I will continue to defend this great and exceptional nation, and I will always fight for our values!
