    At over 73 and a third generation inland s.Californian many in my folks and grandparents' generation were very concerned about a Jap invasion of our southern coast. Land and march up the Santa Ana Riverbed and do here what they did in China. By the fall we knew that they had no way to get here. Same for the Germans on the east. Mostly horse drawn, no landing ships, etc. Yes, they had some armor, but both marched on foot.

    One thing I do know is that a Coast Guard Cutter is the last ship afloat that saw action during the Pearl Harbor raid. She is the USCGC Taney (WHEC37), she earned three battle stars having served in WWII, Korea, and Viet Nam. Currently she is berthed in Baltimore Harbor one of several Historical Ships.
