I worked down the mill with a few Pearl Harbor survivors and many, many WWII, Korea and Viet Nam veterns. Most all very special people.
I was also lucky enough to see the the Arizona Memorial in 1979 with my wife and her mom and dad who was a very decorated WWII Army Master Sergeant in so many hell holes in the Pacific. That's why he liked Hawai'i, an R&R from chaos.
The Arizona Memorial is amazing, you can see the whole outline of the ship, the big gun turret hollow circles....and the occasional oil droplets coming to the surface.
Also a LOT of Jap visitors there too!
