    Years ago I thought that they would not allow American and Japanese tourists out to the Arizona at the same time? When I was stationed on Guam there were also a lot of Japanese tourists there. If you were walking on the beach they would come over to you and ask if they could get a picture with you. That was WIERD. The Japanese are notoriously rude. They don't apologize if they bump into you. I had a problem with one man in particular when I was on a Whale watching cruise in Glacier Bay Alaska. He acted like he didn't understand English until I threatened to throw him overboard if he bumped into me again. He never came near me the rest of the cruise.

    They are usually the elite class of the Japanese and are used to being treated as such.

    They don't make the transisition very well when they visit Hawaii.

    My Brother's family was at the Arizona Memorial this summer and the old girl is still leaking oil into the harbor.

    I read that they identified a 100 Pearl Harbor KIAs the other day and notified their families.

    Rest-in-Peace Y'all.

    My daughter lives in Honolulu.
    She can't stand them and she has lived there 30 years.

    My mil’s first husband died at Iwo Jima. Her opinion about all things from Japan was palpable.

    We have something sorta of in common. My Mom's best friend in college and lifelong friend's husband was hit in the abdomen with three machine gun rounds on Iwo Jima. It caused him to have diabetes which he died from about 40 years of age. Their son also served in the Marines and stepped on a land mine in Vietnam permanently fouling up his legs.

    God bless the United States Marine Corp. Amen
