It was a sobering experience for Bethany and I to be on a ship in Pearl Harbor in February of 2013, but absolutely nothing compared to what people experienced here on today’s date in 1941. 9 quarts of oil still float to the water’s surface from the USS Arizona EACH DAY as a permanent reminder of the sacrifices made here 79 years ago. Bullet holes etched in the hangar glass on Ford Island are still visible today, telltale marks of the strafing from the Japanese Zeros. Let’s not forget the sacrifices military personnel and civilians made through World War II to lead our country and our allies to victory, allowing us all to continue to live the freedom we all take for granted from time to time.
