Granted, I know some of you have been to Hawaii and have seen the U.S.S Arizona Memorial. I, on the other hand, have not been there.
I've seen the Memorial on television, but never from the air. I had no idea the Arizona could be seen so easily from this position. Photo is from Anders.com.
This image, found on satimagingcorp.com can be enlarged. What surprised me was not only was there a USS Arizona Memorial, there was a USS Utah Memorial
and a USS Missouri Museum, which also can be seen to the left and below the USS Arizona on the satellite image. I couldn't find the author of this photo.
Whether you live in the U.S. or somewhere else in the world, December 7, also known as Pearl Harbor Day is the day we Americans got into WWII. There aren't many veterans left who survived that battle in which 2,403 Americans died and 1,178 were wounded. I'm sure many of you have heard tales from either your parents or grandparents about WWII and how your country was affected, too. So today let's remember those veterans who survived that attack and be respectful of all veterans of that war. Soon, there will be no more of them left.
As always, I am grateful for your visit and appreciate your continued support of both my art and my remembrances.
