First, a sincere thanks to this man and all our other veterans alive or dead. If you want to know, sir, why we are over there just call BP or Shell or any other petroleum corporation (all headquartered around the world except in the US) and ask why oil is worth dying for.

Yes today is a day of remembrance except at The University of Texas at El Paso where the American flag is lowered to half staff when Juarez students are killed or radical ex-hippie, flag burning war protesting proffesors die. Today the American flag flies at full staff!

"Until Sept. 11, 2001, the attack on Pearl Harbor was the only time an enemy had directly attacked a U.S. territory in modern history."

Not so. During W.W.II there were several instances of direct attacks on U.S. territory after Pearl Harbor. The Japanese shelled the California coast from a submarine, invaded the Aleutian Islands in Alaska, German submarines sank freighters right off the coast of New York, and then there were the notorious Japanese balloon bombs that were floated across the north Pacific and landed in the Pacific Northwest, Oregon - Washington areas. Some are still feared to be out there.

Lest your zeal to dramatize your human interest stories overcomes you, you might at least try this thing called Wikipedia...it's oh so easy.

Hey Mr. Knowitall, maybe the article was addressing the magnitude of Pearl harbor and 9/11. In which case, your footnotes don't even compare unless you're so anally retentive as to over look the obvious. And if that's the case, why not Wikipedia the Villa raid on Columbus since that happened in 1916?

What are we doing in the Middle East???? What's it for?? Who is it for???

Bring our troops home now; these wars don't make sense to me or to the average American Joe. Enough is enough!!
