Veterans never forget. Obama never seems to remember:
Soucy lived to be 90, passing away just last year. On Tuesday, seven decades after dozens of fellow sailors were killed when the USS Utah sank on Dec. 7, 1941, a Navy diver took a small urn containing his ashes and put it in a porthole of the ship.
The ceremony is one of five memorials being held this week for servicemen who lived through the assault and want their remains placed in Pearl Harbor out of pride and affinity for those they left behind.
“They want to return and be with the shipmates that they lost during the attack,” said Jim Taylor, a retired sailor who coordinates the ceremonies.
The elite Washington, D.C., school where President Barack Obama’s daughters are students is offering a surprising lunch menu on Pearl Harbor Day.
The Washington Post revealed the lunch menu at the Sidwell Friends private school for Dec. 7 — the date Japan attacked US forces at Pearl Harbor in 1941 — includes teriyaki chicken and edamame alongside tofu and “oriental noodle salad.”
The menu is printed on a school calendar, which notes that Wednesday is Pearl Harbor Day. (H/T to Texas Fred)
