Attack on Pearl Harbor
« on: December 07, 2019, 08:01:50 PM »

During the Penguins intermission I am sitting here reading articles on this day in history, December 7th, 1941, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the USS Arizona Memorial when I was in the Navy back in 1994. Has anyone else ever been there to see it? An amazing  but very sad place to see and reflect and to just think there are people right under your feet that were trapped and drowned. the last crewmember of the Arizona that wanted to be buried with his ship mates died in September and his ashes were placed in the Arizona today. 3 more crew members are still alive but are going to be buried with their families when they pass.

Just to take that little boat ride out to the Arizona and still see oil leaking from the ship brought a tear to my eye.
