I assurec him that the kind of cruising I like is much different than his experience on the Alabama. Once he got on the ship, he loved it. We took our first cruise in 2001 on HAL's Ryndam and recently booked out 5th . We've been many places but I've never been to Hawaii so that is where we are going.

Jack was at Pearl Harbor about a year after the attack and we have already booked our excursion there.
My mom remembers one of her uncles had holes in his car. Because he and the car were on base for the attacks. He was fine and the car still ran. So he was very lucky.
