Pearl Harbor Day

Since last year a friend returned a copy of a picture we gave them years ago, the original of this photo was lost in the house fire, including the negative.

My photo of the Arizona Memorial for webFrom a trip we made to Hawaii to visit Donie’s fathers grave in the Veterans Grave-site in Maui and on this trip we were finally able to get a seat on the boat out to the Arizona Memorial.
The little boy was just standing there gazing at the wall when I came up and shot this picture.   My paternal grandfather had been a Navy Man in WWI, re-enlisted in WWII and passed away soon after the end of the war from a service related illness.  I never met him.
