My Thoughts on ‘Pearl Harbor.’

Memorial Day

Posted on May 25, 2001

“As we hit the lakes, rivers and backyard spas this weekend, don’t forget to remember those, their families, who fought and died to give us the freedom we enjoy.

Take a minute to drop a line to a friend, family member, or acquaintance who has chosen to defend our nation at home and abroad. Pick up a tab, send over a round of drinks, or just go a few steps out of your way to shake the hand of a serviceman in uniform. It will make your weekend more enjoyable.

Have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend.”

-Troy W. Vincent

It’s finally here. I’ve been waiting for this film since the summer of 1999. Pearl Harbor opens today nationwide.

I will post my initial reaction tonight. I will post a small review tomorrow.
