Pearl Harbor

I'm standing in front of the shrine listing all those who perished

A list showing the names of all those on the various ships, and their ranks

The USS Missouri, which was the site of the surrender of the Empire of Japan at the end of WWII

A story about how/why the ships were aligned in the port as they were

The USS Arizona's Gun Turret Mount that protrudes from the water

A map of how Pearl Harbor was set up

The names of survivor's who have since died, and have had their ashes returned to join their comrades who never made it out of the USS Arizona

A schematic map of the island of Oahu. The Japanese planes came into Pearl Harbor from the north, starting at marker #3

The USS Arizona Memorial

I have more photos if anyone is interested...
