Pearl Harbor Anniversary 2016

Post by m88youngling » Tue Dec 06, 2016 8:54 pm

I know it is a bit late and I cannot participate in such an event tomorrow on YSF since I am going to be playing Taps at my local VFW, but I was wondering if it would be possible for a joint squadron/airline flyover of Pearl Harbor on a public server in memorial to the lives lost in the attack. (Tomorrow, December 7th, 2016)

I know there are various nationalities on YSFHQ, and that it shouldn't be all about the USA, and I stand behind that completely. I think in the future other events can be recognized as well and it's a good thing to think about the memorial days of other countries and their other important holidays.

I just figure, lives are lives. The Pearl Harbor attacks kicked off a chain of events that led to the deaths of innocent Americans, Japanese and other nationalities alike in one form of another.

Also, squadron cooperation in the event may be good to show that we all can work together for a good cause and put our differences behind us.

If this is a bad idea, I understand. Just wanted to throw the idea out there.

I think it's about time VFA-49 and GrunSol do something other than be at each other's throats. Vic, VNAF, if you're willing, I'd welcome a Joint Formation flight over Pearl Harbor and HNL by both of our squadrons as a sign of respect for the fallen.

By organising a special fly-over event last minute?

Not going to happen.
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

It's a fly over. A few people from Grun, 49th and other squadrons hop on a server at a certain time, agree on a starting point and fly over while someone records if they want to.

Doesn't sound very logistically challenging to me.

It does when we're all busy and need to organise the time off.

I had figured that with the size of the 49th and the number various squadrons around here that at least a few people would be available. Not like this requires the presence of every single person.

Okay then, I thought you were after as many as possible. I'm sure a few people can get together.

We could push it to a different day or time. I mean, I understand that, we can do it sometime this weekend.

I was about to suggest that, as a lot of holidays that happen during the week are very unrealistic to organize events for even well in advance. It would be worth considering this weekend.

I salute all the brave soldiers who were at Pearl Harbor and those who perished on the USS Arizona.
