    I was only six and can't be sure I remember that day.

    We visited the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor during 2005.
    We came early and stood in line for 2 hours before getting inside the main building. After viewing a very touching movie a small craft took us out to the sunken battleship. The Memorial strikes a special place with everyone. From the Memorial we visited the USS Missouri. Very interesting for on it's deck is where the WW2 surrender was signed, also the Missouri saw service during Desert Storm. We noticed when we completed the tour in the afternoon and was leaving there was no line. They told us during the busy season the lines last all day and waiting times can be up to 4 hours.

    Some have probably already seen these but I have some pictures here.
