    Thanks for posting that slideshow, very apropos on this "date which will live in infamy". A few of those I had not seen, or if I had seen them I forgot them. Thanks again "mcoffee".

    Pearl Harbor Raid: Post-attack Ship Salvage post attack salvage..

    During the weeks following the Japanese raid, a great deal of repair work was done by the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard, assisted by tenders and ships' crewmen. These efforts, lasting into February 1942, put the battleships Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Tennessee; cruisers Honolulu, Helena, and Raleigh; destroyers Helm and Shaw, seaplane tender Curtiss, repair ship Vestal and the floating drydock YFD-2 back into service, or at least got them ready to steam to the mainland for final repairs. The most seriously damaged of these ships, Raleigh and Shaw, were returned to active duty by mid-1942.

    Great slide show. FDR's "Day of Infamy" speech remains high on my list of impressive oratory. I recommend that everyone listen to it sometime today.

    Glad you guys enjoyed it. I did notice an error in one of the captions - the destroyers Casin and Downes were labeled as 'battleships'

    Caught that error too. It amused me. You can see Pennsy, of course. But she is singular and rather obscured by Casin and Downes

    Definitely needs a bump to the forefront today.
