We spent the whole day at Pearl Harbor and still didn't see everything. It is a sobering depiction of a horrible event. The museums, aftifacts and tours pull together the events leading up to the attack, the chronology of the attack, and the feelings of understanding and healing that we need to embrace. The tours of the USS Bowfin submarine and the USS Missouri battleship were fascinating. It is something everyone needs to take the time to see.

Our first stop after touring a couple of the museums giving the history leading up to the attack was the USS Arizona memorial. This is the ship that was shot down and sank almost immediately. It remains today beneath the water as a permanent tomb to the many servicemen that were never recovered. It leaks 1-3 quarts of oil per day still, which many say are the tears from the ship.
