So long ago but I have a slight remembrance of that terrible day. This pass July my wife and I visited Hawaii. To me, the high light of the trip was Pearl Harbor at Honolulu. It was there we made the tour of the USS Arizona Memorial and the battleship USS Missouri. On the deck of the Missouri is where Japan signed the Formal Surrender to the Allied Powers. I don't see how anyone (from the USA) can go to the Arizona Memorial without having deep feelings. Before the boat takes you out to the Memorial the Park Service shows a film about the attack at Pearl Harbor. I began to shed tears during the film and I wasn't alone. Out on the deck of the Memorial (it is built above the Arizona) I again became choked up and watery eyes as I watched the oil droplets bubble up from the sunken hull of the Arizona. The USS Arizona is the final resting place for many of the ship's 1,177 crewmen who lost their lives on December 7, 1941. The USS Missouri was in service during Dessert Storm. I'm sure the control room where I sat was very busy place at that time. Outside on the ship they have painted icons representing the missiles that were fired. We spent over 2 hours standing in lines to get into the entrance of the Memorial. They told us some days the lines are much longer. People from all over the world but mostly Americans and Japanese. Also the original control tower is still standing at Hickam Field. Still has the bullet holes from the attack. For anyone interested, I have some pictures HERE.
