A day that will live in infamy

Today is the 79th anniversary of the Japanese attack on US naval forces at Pearl Harbor. President Roosevelt termed it “A day that will live in infamy.” Please take time to remember the dead from WWII, on both sides of the conflict.

Aftershave Treatment: Bosomo Alum Block followed by a face wash with The Fat left over lather.
