Pearl Harbor Memorial

Since we are a military family, a visit to Hawaii wouldn't be complete without a visit to Pearl Harbor. As a matter of fact, it was one of the first places we visited. Unfortunately, we got there about 30 minutes before closing time. Disappointed, we decided to try our best to see what we could… Read More
