My Visit to Pearl Harbor, USS Arizona Memorial
76 years ago today Pearl Harbor in Hawaii was attacked by Japan, bringing the United States into World War II.
Ten years ago while honeymooning in Hawaii, I had the opportunity to visit those hallowed waters and the USS Arizona Memorial. Except for the Flight 93 Memorial in Pennsylvania, it is the most solemn place I have ever been. If you are ever in Hawaii I feel like it is your duty as an American to see it first hand.
1,177 sailors and Marines were killed on the Arizona. 2,403 military members and civilians were killed.
