Probably our most memorable experiences were seeing history come alive and reliving those days of the attack of Pearl Harbor then visiting the PunchBowl military cemetery where so many valiant men and women were buried who gave their lives. The Arizona Memorial is located over the remains of that battle ship and hundreds of men were entombed below us. It makes you appreciate our freedoms that we take for granted. The memorial visit was free and not that crowded, we went on a sunday morning in January and only had to wait less than an hour for the shuttle to take us out. It was well worth our time.We also took time to see the Air Museum as Allen's father had flown B-125s from the Aleutian islands in WW II.
