One of the things I will always remember is going in dress whites to pay my respects my first time through Pearl.

Back in 1963 while in the USMC I visited the memorial and what struck me was the oil bubbles still pumping out of the ship to the surface. It gave this old jarhead goosebumps and brought tears to my eyes. just as my watching this presentation and the placing of the sailors urn. thank you, Jack

Wow that was a nice video. I did not know that survivors could be laid to rest there.

I couldn't believe the profound sense of calm and of loss I felt when stepping aboard. It was surreal.

There was one ******* and his family letting his kids climb all over the area with the names. I quietly jumped his ass and set him straight.

A master chief I worked for in the early sixties was aboard the Arizona and couldn't get the ammo locker open so he dove over the side. Lucky he survived.

Ya, I've met a few Pearl Survivors thru my grandfather who was stationed on the Oglala. She was birthed at pier 7 I think it was and struck by a torpedo. Amazing men, absolutely amazing people.
