Pearl Harbor now is such a pretty place. It is very hard to imagine that anything evil could happen at this place. But it did, 74 years ago on December 7, 1941.
When Japanese planes attacked the Pacific Fleet in a surprise attack.
When the Navy launch approaches the USS Arizona Memorial everybody gets very quiet. It is more than a memorial. It is also a grave site.
The Memorial is the final resting place for 1,102 Sailors and Marines who were killed when the USS Arizona sank during the attack.
It is one of the most moving experiences I have ever had visiting the memorial. It had been on my bucket list a long time.
