Warriors all. Visit to the Pearl Harbor Memorial is a tough one.

Is truly a shame that people forget, mostly the veterans remember. It's easy for me, i married the most wonderful person, who is still the light of my life. 7 December 1960, we are married 54 years.

The visitor's center at Pearl Harbor and the short boat trip out to the US Arizona should be on EVERY American's bucket list.'

The Arizona, still, leaks a bit of oil all the time. While we were on the memorial above it, an elderly WWII vet dropped some flower petals on the water and within a few minutes some oil came up the surface...wasn't a dry eye on the place. (I snapped a few pictures.)

My wife and I visited in 71 while I was on R&R from Vietnam, very sobering to think of all those lost right below us in the hull of that Magnificent Battleship. In 1971 while on the DMZ we heard a tremendous roaring sound overhead, I thought it was jets and radioed my LT back in base camp, he said it was a Battleship, the hills ahead of us started to get a lot smaller, I was glad it was ours.

Here is the picture of the oil that came up after the WWII veteran dropped some flower petals into the water over the USS Arizona.
