Thank you Andy for reminding us what memorial day is all about. Both my sons are active Duty, Army and Marine Corps respectively, So My wife and I really appreciate the appropriate message. For the record I am not particularly emotional but on my first visit to Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial I think I cried for 2 solid hours. Keep up the good work and thanks again

We visited the memorial on Dec 8th of last year. It was 70 years +1 day after the attack. Words can not describe the the emotions one feels when the set foot onto the memorial. It was the last "official" gathering of the Pearl Harbor Survivors as the organization has been disbanded. I was very fortunate to have shaken the hand of several survivors and thank them for their service.
