Most tourist have a visit to the Arizona Memorial scheduled when visiting Hawaii.
My wife, Carol-Ann and myself, were no exceptions to this.
Our visit to the USS Arizona was an extremely heart wrenching experience and something that will be engraved in my memory for ever.

I was raised on stories of the Pearl Harbor attack along side many examples of Japanese barbarity during the Pacific war. Both my parents were serving members of the military during those years of incredable violance, heroisim, courage and sacrifice.

But now we are all friends again and most combatants have now sadly passed. Their children are getting close to that point now too.

The USS Arizona memorial will help keep history alive for generations to come. Hopefully the memorial will serve to inspire more great deeds and service among future generations.
