~Pearl Harbor...Week-End

Happy Memorial Day Week-End to you all. Hope everyone has some fun stuff planned. Well I bring you MD themed movie. Pearl Harbor. Enjoy and have a great week-end!
The classic story of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is told through the eyes of two boyhood friends, now serving as officers in the Army Air Corps. Rafe is an energetic young pilot who is selected to fly with the British in Europe while America is still not at war. After Rafe is shot down and presumed killed, however, Danny comforts Rafe's former lover, Evelyn, and the two draw closer. But, when Rafe turns up alive, the two former friends become enemies, and it is through the turmoil of Pearl Harbor that the two may reconcile their differences.
