I hated thinking about the many who lost their lives when I was on vacation in Hawaii, but it is a part of the story when you come to our 50th state.  In honor of those lost and the powerful military we do have here in America , I wanted to share a few shots of “our” equipment utilized by our brave men and women who have served and continue to serve nation across the universe.

You can see a part of the Arizona from the memorial deck such as this photo depicts.

    These now old, sunken wrecks, once proud ships, are so important both for the history, and for the wildlife that make their homes in them. They provide safety and breeding grounds similar to the natural coral reefs. I love the little fish you can see around the rusted ship.

    Beautiful photos. I read a lot about the Second World War and much of the material around US entry and Pearl Harbor. It’s so nice to see some history on my feed. 🙂

      Hey Suzanna- glad you are enjoying. I have lots of subjects I write on, but many times my writing is inspired by what is happening right now in my life or my brain and my nikon lens!! Thank you.
