    May God bless the souls of our departed victims of the attack and those survivors who have come to pass since then.Please continue to remember their lives.
    My dad,Homer R.Parker served in the U.S. Army Air Corps from 39-45 and was detatched from Wheeler to Bellows Field at the time of the attack.Poppy died in ’97.He remains one of the greatest influences in my life and instilled in me a great pride for our country.He was a member of PHSA Buckeye Chapter 2 in Ohio.
    I send my blessings to all whose lives have been touched by the attack as well as those who help us to never forget December 7th,1941 and all our veterans who have served or are actively serving today.
    Sincerely,
    Carol Parker-Park
