My birthday

I'm not the only thing that happened on December 7.

A very important date.

45 years to the day after this was taken, I was spending my first day in US Navy boot camp. I am still in the US Navy Reserves, and am very proud to serve.

I've been past these sunken ships, and their memorials several times, and it is an experience unlike any other.

Here are a couple more pictures too. One on Dec 7, and one possibly Dec 8.
