I think it is important, when you go to Hawaii, to remember the significance of those who lost their lives on December 7, 1941 and the following days after the attack. My parents took us to the Punchbowl Cemetary, which is probably the most beautiful and well respected veterans cemetary I've ever gone to. Additionally, we went to the USS Arizona Memorial. I also saw the USS Utah and USS Oklahoma Memorials but didn't have my camera at the time so my parents have those photos.
Something of interest to mention: My Grandpa's cousin (so a distant cousin of mine) was a Seaman on the USS Oklahoma during the attacks and was killed. I believe his body was never found. It was special to find his name on the walls.
This block centers the numerous walls that line the walkway up to the memorial with the names of those who have not been found.
