Its really hard for me to forget. The Arizona Memorial is in my view daily. So have any of you ever been to one of the anniversary ceremonies? You really dont need to attend one to feel the emotions but its heart wrenching. So many historical sites I have been to in regards to that day and a bit beyond. Leaves you with very deep thoughts.

i have and other than the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknowns in arlington cemetary, there is very little that compares in emotion and pure power.

it's also interesting to see how the veterans from both japan and the us get together without feeling the need to still be enemies...

My grandfather (still alive and kicking) is a survivor. He was stationed on the USS Utah on the other side of the island and his boat was attacked by accident because the chinese thought it to be some worthwhile target. He had entered the Navy 1 week after marrying my grandmother (also still alive) and then left for 54 weeks of at sea duty in which my grandmother wrote him everyday and sent him pckages everyday also (things like cigarettes and drinks and chocolates...you were apparently the schniznit if you had Hersheys chocolates)

after the war my grandfather studied to become a teacher and of all people....he taught my father before he married my mom (grandpa didnt like dad at first...he was a hooligan) and he also taght the UnaBomber in his english class.

he has been honored at Pearl Harbor with what is left of his shipmates and has special permission to have his ashes scattered with his friends at sea. He was also interviewd recently by the FBI before they knew where to find the bomber (sorry cant remeber the guys name) and shortly after interview he was arrested...he still remebered my grandfather and according to my grandfather when he was being taken in....he had asked for my grandfather to be there and he (bomber) had tears in his eyes and said "Sorry Mr Oberto." thats the last words anybody heard him speak. crazy huh? small world we live in sometimes

I have a link somewhere for my grandads website about the Utah.

http://www.ussutah.org/

tells a bit about the boat and such.




PS........my grandfather was on special invite to see the movie "Pearl Harbor" and he wrote the producers and asked them if they enjooyed toruring old war people by making them relive somethng they have fought so hard to forget.


*edit for funny fact* he didnt know how to swim either despite being in the Navy...he learned when he hit the water

I frequent Ford Island alot for my contract work. The Navy housing and the buildings so I know exactly where the utah was. There's a plaque there. Alot of new housing also went up on the island. Did yer grandfather ever tell you guys about Quarters K and the dungeon beneath it? Pretty interesting history there.
