    I'll be honest I don't recall him but I'm not on this site too much. He sounds like a great guy from how you guys speak of him.
    I'm sorry that he is gone and that I missed my chance to interact with him. My prayers go out for him and his family.

    Ceremony pays homage to those involved in Pearl Harbor attack

    As the wind whipped through the cold December air, people gathered at the North Union VFW Post 8543 Sunday to pay homage to those involved in the attack on Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1941.


    "I remember what I was taught," said Ed Fike, mayor of the city of Uniontown. "What Franklin Delano Roosevelt said about Pearl Harbor, 'A date which will live in infamy.'"

    This day of infamy began when Japanese military forces surprise attacked the United States military base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. This attack launched America into World War II, which was already underway throughout other parts of the world.

    The attack not only wounded American forces, but the lives of many Americans were affected as 2,403 people were killed. "The young men and women not only gave up the lives they were living, but also the lives they might have lived," said Fike. "A life watching their children and grandchildren grow up."



    County Commissioner Angela Zimmerlink took part in the ceremony by offering her gratitude to all veterans. "Thank you to each and every veteran that is here today and those who have fallen," she said. "Without you, we wouldn't be here today."

    Representative Tim Mahoney paid homage to the World War II generation. "People say this is the greatest generation, and I think people of this current generation should take notice to the generations of the past," he said.

    Bea Dyer of Uniontown sang two songs during the ceremony.

    One was "The Star Spangled Banner" and the other was an emotional song called "My Buddy" that tells of the longing for a friend that has since passed away.

    Lou Giachetti, the master of ceremonies and comrade of the United War Veterans, invited his 12-year-old grandson, Michael Giachetti, to read "Remember Our Flag" a poem by Jack Doyle, of the USS Tennessee.

    The ceremony concluded with the lowering of the flag to half-mast, a firing squad and the playing of "Taps."

    "I want people to remember Pearl Harbor and what a tragic day it was," said Lou Giachetti. "I also want them to take away a sense of pride, dignity and patriotism."

    Giachetti's hope for remembrance echoes the sentiments expressed in Doyle's poem:

    "I think of Pearl Harbor ...

    As they burn the flag today,

    If those who died could speak to us

    I wonder what they'd say?

    Yes, some may burn the flag today

    For which my comrades died

    But I shall look upon that flag

    With honor, love and pride."

    I never knew Viz, but I firmly believe that a person is judged by the opinions of others, and it is clear that the others had a very high opinion of Viz.

    Godspeed SIR

    I'm sorry to hear this. I remember Viz. I didn't know him personally, but from reading his posts before, he seemed like a unique individual. RIP VIZ.

    This is a sports forum after all, so Kip, how about a suggestion. Why not have a ring of honor for our teammates who have passed on?
