I agree with you completely. My first year out of work after 36 years for one employer I volunteered at our local Elementary School. Believe me American children ARE NOT GETTING the History we got. I learned in a History Class in 3 RD grade my father was at the Attack at HICKAM on 12/7/1941 when our teacher read his interview on 12/7/1956. The teacher left his name out and then announced to us 3RD graders, "that young airman's son is in our class today and it is you Gregg!" That night at supper I carefully asked him if it was true. He was as surprised as I was and asked me "who told you this?" I told him and he admitted yes he had been there. He lost several long time and dear friends moments into the Attack. We got a Christmas Card every year from his closest friends parents until one day they joined their son in Glory. The children I worked with never heard or learned anything of our countries past or conflicts. Unless they know and understand as you said we may find ourselves in another war. Many of the WWII Veterans are leaving us and soon we their children will be gone. Then we will have a generation of Obamas who never even joined the Boy Scouts. I offered to give the original 1956 interview to republish this year to our local newspaper. The editor after reading my letter asked me to write my story as well. That day several Veterans called me I never met to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR REMINDING OUR COMMUNITY and remembering us. I have included his two closest friends killed almost immediately. Garrett's parents sent my parents the Christmas Card.
