|The USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor|
I was very happy to see two smiling, energetic faces at the visitor center. These two gentlemen in the photos below were mugging for photos and signing their memoirs and books for the delight of tourists. They were both survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor, and regular visitors and exhibitors at the National monument. It reminded me to think of the strong, vigorous young soldiers they must have been in 1941. Their energy was inspirational!
