Arizona Memorial Visit – December 5, 2016

Today I visited the USS Arizona Memorial and was overwhelmed with pride and sadness at the thought of so many young men entombed in the remains of a once proud and mighty ship. There was a reverence I felt when walking around the memorial and I have to admit I choked up when a survivor of the attacks on Pearl Harbor spoke of his experiences that day.  I took pictures of the entire experience and you can view those in the slideshow.

I do not know how you cannot be changed after viewing the sacrifice of those members of the Greatest Generation in all theaters of conflict during World War II.
