I had the honor to visit the Arizona memorial when I lived in Hawaii, I'll never forget it.

Couldn't make the anniversary, but have a friend there with her Mother, who was just off base when it happened.

My dad was stationed at Hickam from 1966 - 1969.  I was about 6, but I remember going out to the Arizona Memorial shortly before we moved.  I obviously didn't have a true appreciation of what it represented when I was there.  I hope to go back someday.  We lived there when they were filming 'Tora Tora Tora', and I recall both of my parents later describing it as surreal.

Wow, Mike, that must have been surreal for them to be filming on location.
Tora, Tora, Tora was a must see film for me and my Dad as a kid.  That and the Battle of Britain.
