Signal Photos


More coverage of Pearl Harbor warranted

“A date which will live in infamy”: Apparently, The Signal didn’t agree! Not a mention on the front page? Nothing about the thousands of lives lost on that fateful day and the thousands lost during World War II.

That day brought us into the war, and you would think there would be more than a simple picture of the Arizona burning on the second page.

What oversight does this convey to our veterans? Will the same non-recognition be given to our men and women fighting all over the world today? Afghanistan and Iraq to mention a few.

The nation’s heart was deeply wounded on that day and we “all” need to acknowledge one of the worst events in the history of the United States.

Our veterans deserve every honor and to be remembered for their service and sacrifices.

Shame on The Signal for such a “passing photo” of that terrible day without any meaningful write-up.

God bless America!

Editor’s note: Besides the Dec. 7 A2 photo of the Arizona with the accompanying note in the Today in History fixture, The Signal ran a story on page A7 about Ray Emory, an attack survivor and World War II veteran who campaigned for the identification of Americans killed in the attack.
