A Day That Will Live In Infamy

December 7, 2011 by staff 

A Day That Will Live In Infamy, I went looking for one. Just one. I wanted to speak with someone who was in Farmingdale that day, the day of infamy 70 years ago when the Imperial Japanese Navy bombed the floating battlefields at Pearl Harbor disrupting the course of history forever.

I couldn’t find someone from around here who signed up right after the attack. Most of them are gone now. But I do know what I would have asked him – the very things that I will never forget about my lifetime’s day of infamy.

I would ask about the morning, where he was when he found out about the attack, who told him and how, even what he was wearing. I would ask about the afternoon, who he knew who was directly affected, how the news spread, how it was covered. I would ask about the months that followed, the tone of the country, when and how he enlisted, how he said goodbye and how he stayed in touch with his family and friends.
