Living in infamy

    It’s the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor today – the day declared to live in infamy.

    The Inquirer reports on how the attack spurred jobs and shipbuilding here in the Philadelphia area, and the Roxborough Review has video of local vets braving the cold to commemorate the anniversary. 

    The National Constitution Center has a day packed with remembrance activities if you’re looking for a way to participate.

    In related news, the Navy has honored a local New Jersey family as the Navy Family of the Year for 2010.

    Logistics Specialist 1 Charles Seidel, his wife Bobbie and their son Charles were cited for their leadership and service to the local communities around their duty stations.

    Charles Seidel is stationed at Naval Weapons Station Earle in Monmouth County. Bobbie Seidel works at the former Lakehurst Naval Air Engineering Station in Ocean County.

    Both have been active with food banks, clothing drives and school reading programs, as well as the Navy League and the Wounded Warriors Project.
