Pearl Harbor

During our time in Hawaii we took some time to go to Pearl Harbor. During our time in Luxembourg we traveled to many of the World War II sites such as Normandy, and it seemed only fitting that we should visit the place that marked the entrance of the U.S. into World War II.

When you first enter the memorial you watch a video of how the events of December 7th, 1941 unfolded. We learned how complete battleships were destroyed in Pearl Harbor and sank killing thousands of men. We then took a boat out to the Arizona Memorial which sits over the sunken U.S. battleship Arizona that sank that day. It was amazing to see another very important place in American history.
