Being a VFW member, I've talked to some of these men and women and in general it was shock and Horror. Shock that we could get caught with our pants around our ankles. Horror in seeing the devestation of the bombing. The death tolls, ships that were sunk with sailors stuck inside them. Then anger. The armed forces were chomping at the bit to back at them.
