Why is it important to remember dates such as this?

 

 

"Pearl Harbor caused our Nation to wholeheartedly commit to winning World War II, changing the course of our Nation's history and the world's future."
- Joe Baca

 

The reason that PV216 gave is one of the most important. We owe it to the servicemen and women and their families to honor and remember them, especially those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
 
If that's not enough, here are some good quotes on why remembering history is important.
 
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
- George Santayana
 
“Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.” 
― George S. Patton
 
“A nation which fails to adequately remember salient points of
its own history, is like a person with Alzheimer's. And that can be a
social disease of a most destructive nature.” 
― S.M. Sigerson
 
“When the situation was manageable it was neglected, and now that it is thoroughly out of hand we apply too late the remedies which then might have effected a cure. There is nothing new in the story. It is as old as the sibylline books. It falls into that long, dismal catalogue of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unteachability of mankind. Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong–these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.”
- Winston Churchill

“I have always tempered my killing with respect for the game pursued. I see the animal not only as a target, but as a living creature with more freedom than I will ever have. I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature’s way of fang and claw and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow.” – Fred Bear

What we owe them is respect for what they died  protecting...  The State of NJ makes them and every other Vet look like a bunch of fools...

:D
