This week I commemorate Memorial Day with repeat articles from the Normandy American Memorial Cemetery and Memorial, the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial. Next week I will commemorate the 73rd anniversary of one of the greatest invasions in military history, the D-Day Invasion of June 6, 1944.

Lisa and Al Fittipaldi joined Ursula and me for a ride that would take us high above the towering buildings of Honolulu. Exiting the bus we still had a bit of a hike to our destination. Along the way we would find spectacular views of Honolulu and Diamond Head.
The sun was settling low on the horizon by the time we reached our objective.
