    In 1981, at the age of 10, I had the pleasure to fly to Hawaii, and ride back to San Diego on the USS Ranger with my dad. Armed with a 110 instamatic, I came back with the following:

    Great pics!

    Right now I'm reading Pacific Crucible: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942. Covers a lot of the Japanese and American politics leading up to Pearl Harbor, Pearl Harbor itself and the immediate aftermath, in some detail. Only partway through, so not sure how deep into 1942 it goes (I think just short of Midway). Good read in honor of Pearl Harbor Day.
