Pearl Harbor Day

December 7, 1941 – 2022

December 7, 2022, is also known as Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. I visited Pearl Harbor over a decade ago, and I often post a few images on or around this day.

Here are a few images (some previously posted here, as well as a few new ones) from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

  1. A black day in the history…. when I see these images, I recognise some scenery I saw in the movie The Battle of Pearl Harbour. Impressive memorial for all those soldiers that died on the 7th of december. Great respect !

    1. Thank you so, so much for your touching words. I did see a movie about Pearl Harbor, too…maybe it’s the same one. Pearl Harbor/Pearl City is about a one-hour trip, by bus, from Honolulu. There’s a boat that takes tourists to/from the actual memorial. The memorial, itself, is very peaceful, and…airy. The memorial is perpendicular to the remains of the ship, which lie just below the water’s surface. If you look closely, you can catch a glimpse of it.

      And, yes, I would love to visit again, but who knows….

      Thank you again, very much!
