*Remember Pearl Harbor Today*

This is a repost of our trip to Hawaii in April 2012.
I was so blessed to share this experience with my two granddaughters.
Hello Everyone,
During my vacation to Oahu, Hawaii this month I had the privilege to share the experience of the USS Arizona Memorial with my daughter and granddaughters. The USS Arizona is built over the wreck of the battleship USS Arizona and was dedicated on Memorial Day 1962.  It serves as a lasting tribute to the 1,177 men who lost their lives on the "Day of Infamy". 
Memorial Day 
May 28, 2012 
marks the 70TH Anniversary of the Memorial.


The USS Arizona tells the story of how World War II started.


The USS Missouri tells the story of  how World War II ended.
Next to the USS Arizona Memorial Visitors Center, is moored the battleship known as 
"Mighty Mo"
Particularly stirring is a walk on the Surrender Deck, where on September 2, 1945, Japan signed the "Instrument of Surrender" ending World War II.
