Pearl Harbor

Even though we've been here before, we are both so fascinated with Pearl Harbor. During the presentation we were told 1,177 men died on the USS Arizona.
This is their burial site and memorial. You can feel a reverence as soon as you head out to the memorial.
At the far end of the memorial is a wall with all the name of the soldiers who died that day. It is difficult to describe the feeling.
Cade on the ride back. He was such a good baby that day and every other day so far.
