Hawaii Day 2 and 3 - Pearl Harbor

The last two days have flown by. We have had great weather and the ladies have enjoyed the beach. We had a nice team dinner at the California Pizza Kitchen on Monday which is right next to our hotel. Our hotel is centrally located in Waikiki, so we can get to most places simply by walking. I must say, it is a very busy area.

Day 3 was our trip to Pearl Harbor. As you can see by the pictures I previously posted, it was another beautiful day but quite the departure from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Pearl Harbor is a solemn place where the echoes of war still linger. As you look around, you see young and old trying to understand the horrors of what war brings to a world. I saw many veterans there today. Once gentleman stood silently looking at the names etched in marble as tears rolled down his face. One can only imagine the images going through his mind as he gazed upon the white wall that allows us all to never forget what those men gave us...everything.

I hope the ladies took away just a little piece of history with them today. We lose more and more of our Greatest Generation every day. It is important that we remember them and honor them for what they gave. We owe them everything.
