Pearl Harbor 75 years
#1

[i tried to post yesterday, but I'm still having issues imbedding Google Photos from their Photos and Photo Archive websites. Just had to resort to uploading photos]

 

I had never been to Hawaii before 2015. Then I had the fortune to go there 3 times for various Marine Corps reasons. I took hundreds of pictures (thankfully, I don't have to pay for developing or film anymore!) over the three trips.

Thank you for posting this. I made a brief entry on FB, but unfortunately didn't have time to post on my own forum. I have been cramming to complete my book in order to publish on time for Christmas, so that's been my focus for the past few weeks.
