Yesterday I had the opportunity to honor the fallen from the World War II attack on Pearl Harbor and visit the USS Arizona Memorial. It was a solemn but educational outing to learn about Hawaii’s role in our nations military. It made me very proud to be American! #ussarizonamemorial#hawaii
El USS Missouri (BB-63) Acorazadoclase Iowa de la Armada de los Estados Unidos y fue el cuarto buque nombrado en honor del estado norteamericano de Misuri. Fue el último acorazado construido por los Estados Unidos y el barco en el que se firmó la rendición del Imperio del Japón que puso fin a la Segunda Guerra Mundial.
So emotional. Seeing all the war vets with their hats and pins and medals walking around. Seeing the ships, the names, and reading the plaques. Great men and women that sacrifice everything so we can be free.
The USS Arizona Memorial, at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and Marines killed on USS Arizona during the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and commemorates the events of that day. The attack on Pearl Harbor and the island of Oahu led to the United States' direct involvement in World War II. #dopepics#worldtraveler
Took in a little history today at the #ussarizonamemorial and the #ussbowfin - every visit is a sobering experience. It is cool to see the ships and submarine up close, but it’s also a harsh reminder of the tragedy at Pearl Harbor and the lives that were lost. I think visiting war memorials is important; I know these two learned a lot today. I was reminded of my post on @militarymomsblog about the humbling experience of visiting war memorials, and I think kids should see history up close. The link is in my bio-take a read!
One of the coolest pictures I’ve ever taken! A modern day aircraft carrier coming in to port at Pearl Harbor! I took this through a set of deck binoculars aboard the USS Bowfin submarine which launched December 7, 1942 one year after the Pearl Harbor attack! #ussarizona#ussbowfin
the USS Arizona memorial standing above the actual USS Arizona wreckage, where most of the 1,177 men who died still lay. The ship is known as “the ship that weeps” because of the oil that still continues to leak out after these many years since that day of the attack on December 7th,1941. ❤️
Today I was able to tick off one of things on my bucket list. If anyone truly knows me, knows that one of my hobby’s is reading and learning about modern history. 90% of the time if you ever see me reading it will be a war book or a book on history. Today, I was able to go to see Pearl Harbour in the flesh. It was a bitter sweet moment for me as I have always wanted to come here, but realising it was such a tragedy what happened December 7th 1941. Going through the tour ...
Wasn’t able to set foot on the USS Arizona memorial due to construction work but being so close to it was amazing. Definitely coming back. It has been my dream coming to this place since I was a kid. #pearlharbor#ussarizonamemorial
One of the most important #places I have always wanted to #see ‼️ Every single country I’ve visited, lived in or passed by - have places which I will ALWAYS I was standing there feeling grateful for the for the and for so many things I can’t find good words to describe! . Lubię historie krajów, które zwiedzam, w których mieszkam czy które mijam w podróżach. Zawsze staram się zatrzymać choć na przywoływać w myślach ludzi, którzy żyli, walczyli czy po prostu byli w danych Czasem wyobrażam sobie ludzi, którzy szli ...
can we discuss the bombing on pearl harbour?? It was planned and executed so well against the US Navy who at the time, were THE top of the line. Japan managed to travel discretely across the ocean without being noticed AND their pilots had to be EXTREMELY accurate despite the fog!! 2000 lives were lost and many more were injured. Some vessels couldn’t be salvaged. And even today, oil STILL leaks from the sunken vessels and it’s said that it will continue to weep until the last survivor passes!!! I JUST—
#pearlharbour Very sad day in our history. It was very moving and makes me love our military and our country even more than I did before. Thank you to all that have served. I am proud to say that my grandfather and father both served. 🇺🇸 LOVE YOU ALL❤
