Hi , My name is Bethany and I am new to the forum. I'm very interested in Pearl Harbor history and just returned from Hawaii for the 70th Anniversary of the event. It was a wonderful experience. My Grandfather was killed aboard the USS Oklahoma. Any Pearl Harbor people out there?:)

Welcome.
Where in Washington state are you from? I was born in a little town up North of Spokane but grew up on the West Side. Still have a family and a fair number of friends there.

Welcome, Bethany! We're glad you decided to come aboard. I have an aunt in the Wenatchee area and have been to your beautiful state a couple of times, though not recently. We do have some WW2 veterans who are members, though I don't know if any were at PH. However, we do have a few folks who are well versed on the topic.

Freedom is precious and many gave their lives for it. It is the duty of the future generation
to remember that sacrifice, and offer some sacrifice for themselves if Freedom is threatened.
