Live Dive to Commemorate 74th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor

Today is the 74th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, and the national parks staff is doing something unique to mark the occasion.  A live dive will be held later today, during which a park official will dive down to the sunken U.S.S. Arizona and describe what's left of the ship today as well as what life was like on the ship when it served our country many decades ago.  The event begins at 7:45 p.m. CST and is scheduled to end at 9:15 p.m. CST.  Click here to register.  We've talked many times about how going to a historic site can make history come alive.  If you can't be in Hawaii today, this is a perfect opportunity to learn about what happened 74 years ago today and the great care that is taken to preserve the memories of the lives lost on that day that will live in infamy.
