69 years ago tomorrow . . .

Tomorrow is
National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

On Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, the American Army and Navy base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was attacked by the Imperial Japanese Navy. The attack came as a surprise to the American Army and Navy and lead to great losses of life and equipment. More than 2000 American citizens were killed and more than 1000 were injured. The Americans also lost a large proportion of their battle ships and nearly 200 aircraft that were stationed in the Pacific region.

By the end of World War II, the U.S. had 16 million veteran’s of the US armed forces.  Approximately 1.5 million are still living and are dying at the rate of 900 per day.

My father is one of those surviving veterans. He will be 90 in 3 months. He is only now telling us about the horrors he endured during his 3+ years of service.

Because our office specializes in obtaining Veteran’s benefits for long term care needs, I have had the privilege to hear a number of unbelievable “real” war stories. It saddens me to think that soon all of our WW2 vets “will belong to the ages.” By the way, it is customary to fly a flag at half staff on this day of remembrance.

In the meantime, let’s get the word out that there’s money out there for these special seniors and their surviving spouses. If you are not aware of the benefits that these brave men and women are entitled to or want to educate someone else, I suggest that you visit our website and FREE Virtual Resource Center, where you will receive some of the best information available about these and other benefits:
