Why It’s Important to Remember World War Two

1. Read the "Imperial Cruise" and "Wilson's War" if you are truly interested in the answers. 2. Kindly consider the undisputed, ON THE RECORD notes of Henry Stimson, FDR's Secretatry of War: "The question was how we should maneuver them into the position of firing the first shot without allowing too much danger to ourselves." 3. Also consider the terms we issued the Japanese in the months before Pearl, expecting they wouldn't possibly agree, only to have them ACCEPT to FDR's amazement. So, we REJECTED their agreement to OUR terms.

A couple of years ago, I got involved with the National World War Two Museum in New Orleans. Like any endeavor someone chooses to make time for, I did it for a variety of reasons. As I have waded deeper into the museum, I learn more and more. Whether you like it or not, World War Two has cast an indelible shadow onto your life. The war ended in 1945. But the effects of the war are still with us.

The generation that fought the war is leaving us through attrition. They are all in their eighties and nineties...
