ABOARD THE U.S.S. ARIZONA MEMORIAL, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - On December 7, 1941, an explosion blew sailor Glenn Lane off the burning deck of the U.S.S. Arizona. On Wednesday, he returned to the Arizona a final time to join his shipmates in a ceremony that may be among the last of its kind.

Lane died December 10, 2011, in Mount Vernon, Wash. He was 93.

On a visit to Pearl Harbor I was moved by this. It seems those who cheated death that day wanted to return. I had the same feeling in Saving Private Ryan when Ryan returned to kneel at the Cross of the captain to died to save him. The last words of the Captain to Ryan was to be ‘worth [earn?] this’. A troubled Ryan asked his wife ‘was I a good man’? War is not over till it’s finally over.

Awesome. He is among friends. When I was there twelve years or so ago, they had among the names, people interned after Pearl Harbor and the guide who was a Pearl Harbor survivor said they will inter people that survived which is pretty cool.

I wonder, soon enough, there won’t be any survivors left as guides, it’s sad.

The movie they showed before the ride to the memorial was so incredible, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Maybe I am getting cynical, but when a thread on FR about the passing of one of the last of the USS Arizona heroes barely gets 10 post and a hoax death thread about a B- class actor gets over double that in almost the same amount of time I can’t help but think many be there isn’t any hope for America.

Wife and I toured the Arizona Memorial and later, the BB Missouri two years ago.
The Memorial is just off the bow of the battleship, as if to write the beginning and end of the war.

A small boat took us out from the Pearl Harbor dock to the Memorial and when we got within 100 feet, I got a whiff of Number 6 oil that drifts up, a few drops at a time, from the Arizona’s bunker. The “tears of the Arizona” will keep on leaking to the surface for as long as the wreck is in one big piece. There is talk about what to do to keep the Arizona wreck intact after 71 years of salt water.

Again, really lousy job of headline writing
(where did they bury the survivors?)

I wonder if part of the explanation for what you say might be that there are at least two generations who post here,maybe even three.Most of the older folks,me included,had fathers who were in WWII and/or Korea.Younger Freepers had dads who were in Vietnam.Speaking for myself although I have some knowledge of WWI and enormous gratitude for those who fought in it,I feel "closer" to WWII than to WWI.Perhaps the same thing is true of younger Freepers regarding WWII vs Vietnam.

Just thinkin' out loud....

I would urge everyone who goes to Oahu to go to the memorial before anything else. When I went, the Missouri wasn’t ready for visitors.

What did you think of the movie? Being cynical, I thought some liberal might try to justify Japan’s attacks but I was pleasantly surprised to be completely wrong. Then again, since it’s staffed by survivors, I doubt they would let it happen.

My first cousin once removed was a medical corpsman on the Arizona that had gone to the main hospital that morning. He had no ship with which to return. He worked for three days straight in the hospital with the dying and wounded before he collapsed. He had some real issues until he developed Alzheimer’s but he had lived a good Christian life until he passed.

RIP, Sailor.

My late FIL was a Pearl Harbor Survivor ... US Navy Medical Corps. That generation is rapidly passing away. Among them, men were men, and women were women, and the Axis was defeated.

We would do well to recover some of their wisdom.

The Missouri had just come out of dry dock with fresh paint and a thorough cleaning below decks. We got into every part of the ship except the boiler room (straight down via ladder.)
The officers’ dining area was set with a table service, as if it were minutes from sitting down for chow.
There is also a submarine memorial that must been seen at Pearl. Every sub we lost in WW II is memorialized with the names of the officers and crew. I had no idea so many submarines had been lost or were “still on patrol,” as they say...

Don't lose hope, Kart. Many of us simply sit and read in silent reverence. No words I could type could convey how I feel. I'm certain there are others who do the same.
