I'll drive past Pearl Harbor on my way into work and remember this post, and thoughts of the SF members.

If you have the means in your lifetime, visit Pearl Harbor and the Arizona at least once. Sobering.

It always gives me a weird feeling in the pit of my stomach each anniversary. The event that turned my grandfather from a simple smiling mechanic into a Marine sent to tropical hell. Returned home sick, half blown up and seriously scrambled in the head for years until he quit drinking, found God and became the smiling mechanic again.

I went to Hawaii in 1980 and got so sick I couldn't go on the tour to Pearl Harbor.

Some day I hope to take my kids.

Thank you ~

Never forget, my FIL was a Pearl Harbor survivor. He was on the USS Neosho a fully loaded tanker that came into Harbor the night before. The captain and crew moved the Neosho during the attack to the back side of Ford Island. RIP TR

I've been to the Memorial twice--both times it has been and emotional experience. I can barely recall the day of the attack (I was 2 weeks shy of 4 years old).

I was fortunate to see the memorial during a trip with my wife's company back in the late 80's. Odd thing it was Mitsubishi electronics. what I did notice is that those from the company acted as if they were at a solemn service and acted that way. the others on the trip which included the general public walked around like it was a ride at disney World.

I still have a flag that was flown over the memorial.

My father returned a few years before his death. He was enroute to the island and arrived a few days after the attack. From there is was five years across the Pacific.

I visited the Arizona once 23 years ago when I flew out there for my sister's wedding. That was long before she was joined by the Missouri. It was a very emotional experience. I want to go back again and see both of them.

I spent an hour one Sunday morning with a man who was there. Was quite an experience for me, to hear him explain what he experienced of the times leading up to and the years after that day.

He was in town visiting his daughter, I’ve not seen him again. I could have spent hours, should have spent hours listening to him.
