Shawna wanted to go to Hawaii for our honeymoon, but I convinced her we should go someplace new to both of us by promising a later trip to Hawaii. We managed to make that happen for our 5th anniversary. I think this was my favorite stop while we were in Hawaii. I spent a semester in High School doing a research project and paper on World War II. Then in college I watched as the university bookstore was remodeled and a memorial was installed for the USS Arizona. So making it that far I had to take some time to spend at Pearl Harbor, specifically to see the USS Arizona Monument. Sadly the monument was closed due to storm damage so we could not go into the monument, but we did get to take a boat ride tour around it.
