My post today is in remembrance to those who fought and lost their lives at Pearl Harbor. I was lucky to go to and experience Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona.
I worked hard to earn the Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip to Hawaii … My main goal for achieving this trip was to see the USS Arizona memorial. I thank them for the opportunity to be able to pay my respects.
The USS Arizona Memorial, located at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawai¿i, marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors killed on the USS Arizona during the Attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 by Japanese imperial forces.
Although we had a beautiful hotel on the big Island … we took an island hopper to Oahu and headed to Pearl Harbor. I can’t describe the feeling of being there… it is somber and humbling, I prayed for all those who were lost on that day, and for their families.
War is so tragic … but I am proud of the men and women who serve and sacrifice so much for our entire country. It is those individuals that keep us free.
God Bless all who have served in our armed services and reserves past and present.
