This week is a special time of the year for those of us who are Baby Boomers or, more likely, pre-Baby Boomers. When we were growing up, Pearl Harbor Day was more than a mention in the newspapers. Like the attacks on Sept. 11, Pearl Harbor Day was a day of remembering how everything changed.

To commemorate this auspicious date, we’re publishing this voluptuous image from Alberto Varagas, honoring ski troops from WWII. This appeared some time during the war. You don’t see booties like those much anymore. Thanks, Cathy.

We have some more good news for our subscribers this week.  We are always looking for ways to bring value to our readers.  We’ve worked with two magazine publishers to bring free subscriptions to you guys.  You can get a one-year free subscription to both SKI magazine and SKI HISTORY magazine just by following the links in Jon’s article.

These two benefits add to the list of free skiing for seniors, the ski recommendations, Experticity discounts for those who qualify, and free historic ski posters.  All of these are available for subscribers only.  Look under the Subscribers-Only Content box at the top or under the COMMUNITY > Subscriber-Only Content pics.
