USS Arizona (Photo: www.vaq136.com)
As the nation marks the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, I read a story that talks about interring the ashes of Pearl Harbor veterans so they can be with their shipmates. Veterans from the Utah and Arizona (the only two ships still in the harbor) can have their ashes carried down to the ships by a team of divers, so that they can be reunited with their shipmates who never made it off back in 1941.
I have been to the USS Arizona Memorial before. To say that it is powerful and moving would be a gross understatement.
