VERY LARGE PHOTO DISPLAY PLEASE BE PATIENT WHILE LOADING
The USS Arizona Memorial on Oahu, is the final resting place for many of the battleship's 1,177 crew members who lost their lives on December 7, 1941 during the attack of Pearl Harbor. The Memorial commemorates the site where World War II began for the United States. These photos were taken during my annual pilgrimage to Pearl Harbor which began in 1977.
Photos were taken at The USS Arizona Memorial, USS Missouri in Bremerton WA and Pearl Harbor, USS Utah Memorial, Museum of the Pacific in Bremerton WA, and The Aviation Museum of the Pacific on Ford Island.
History wise, Ford Island was
known to Hawaiians as Moku'ume'ume, which means "island of the game." 1936 was a
momentous time for the island because Pan American Clipper began using it as
terminal for the airlines' pioneering efforts between the Mainland and Asia.
Ford Island and it's construction of the new Aviation Museum helps to put the
attack of Pearl Harbor into perspective. A chance to reflect on the impact of
the attack and allows time to reflect and remember those who were killed in the
December 7,1941 attack. To the up and coming generations, who have no
recollection of World War II it will be a history lesson. There are different
plaques in Ford Island which marks the spots where the eighteen different
battleships sunk at the time of the attack the USS West Virginia, USS Tennessee
and the USS Utah. The first permanent Pearl Harbor memorial is a basalt stone on
Ford Island with a plaque dedicated in 1955. Another plaque was welded to the
deck of the sunken battleship USS Utah resting on the bottom of the harbor on
the opposite side of Ford Island. The control tower at Luke Field, featured in
the movie Pearl Harbor, is the tallest control tower in the world made entirely
of iron. Amelia Earhart crashed on takeoff from Luke Field during her first
attempt at flying around the world.
In 1964, the island was designated a National Historic Landmark
