and Kathleen -

Thank you both for commenting. My dad enlisted as soon as he turned 18 in 1943. He and my mom went to Hawaii many years ago. When they came home, they told me that their most treasured memory was their visit to the Pearl Harbor Memorial.

My mom went to Hawaii a few years after my dad passed away. That was the first thing she talked about when she came home. She said you can still see the oil coming up to the surface.
