Sights of Pearl Harbor

Here are some images to illustrate the activities on Wednesday. Our group disembarks from the buses and gathers on the lawn of the Arizona Memorial visitors center.

Wahoo families touring the memorial.

Oil seeping from the hull of Arizona. It was a slick similar to this that allowed the Japanese to spot Wahoo while exiting La Perouse sixty-four years ago.

Standing on the bow of USS Missouri. During this tour it started to get hot!

I loved reading this great article. It was ver y nice along with the ocean or sea. It was worth reading. I wish I could experience this once in a lifetime.

 

About Me

The first 'grown up' book Paul Crozier ever read was "War Fish" by George Grider. Since then he has spent most of his life researching the U.S. Submarine Force in WWII and USS Wahoo (SS-238) in particular.

Dedication

This blog is dedicated to all who have served in the U.S. Submarine Force. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
