Our Hawaiian Getaway: Part III

Pearl Harbor

Throughout my life I've heard about the attack on Pearl Harbor...but even so, it was just a date in the history books. But being there, standing in the memorial, and looking down on the ship that lay at the bottom of the harbor made it real, oh so real. It was an incredible experience; one filled with solemnity, reverence, and gratitude for those who have sacrificed so much for our country.

Even now, some 70+ years later, oil seeps up to the surface from the engine room.
