      American history must see
      Visited memorial on a tour bus from Waikiki that my best friend drove and it definitely made a difference in going there, be prepared for long lines that at some point turn into swirling circles. Go early, one of the best parts of this visit was meeting some of the remaing survivors of Pearl Harbor who are too happy to meet with you and talk with you about this time. Pete truly captured all the details of going here, his review is right on.

      Memorial of "A Day That Will Live in Infamy"
      This memorial is the modern looking white structure that sits on top of the hull of the battleship USS Arizona that was sunk in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. That action, of course, led our nation into World War II. The visitor center has a museum section that contains interesting information and photographs. The most moving portion of a visit is viewing the memorial itself, which is accessible by a short ride on a U. S. Navy boat. You can get free tickets for the boat ride at a designated departure time in the visitor's center. Before you board the boat, you will see a short film depicting the attack and describing the events of that day. When you get to the memorial itself, you will see a shrine dedicated to the 1,177 innocent young sailors who lost their lives on the USS Arizona that day. A note on getting to the memorial: if you drive, be sure to take the exit from the H-1 Freeway designated as USS Arizona, and not the Pearl Harbor exit (which will take you to the Naval Station).
