    Touching. I wonder if there are any other military cemeteries that offer the same service.

    Offer the same service as what? The crew of the Arizona is unique in this aspect.

    I was on my way to Viet Nam and we had a layover in Hawaii. We took a cab to the memorial and it was amazing. I was fine until the guide told about the oil still seeping to the surface and as one of the drops of oil hit the surface and turned bright blue in color he said that is the ship still crying for her crew. Just then a wind blew something in my eyes and I had trouble seeing.

    So many have given so much for this great country.
