Stoping by Pearl Harbor on the Way to The South China Sea and Viet Nam

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart

Serving on board two destroyers, while in the Navy during the Viet Nam War, we always stopped by Pearl Harbor on our way to WesPac, and on the way back to the mainland.

When onboard ship and in port there, there was an eerie feeling, and recognizable what it felt like back in December 1941 on that Sunday morning.

Often people recognize if you were in the military during a war, and they seem concerned for your life. And as I think about it, seems because of being a teenager there may be less concern or fear because you have not really reached maturity, and even think too much about the process.

That time compared to going on a listing appointment in the early 1980's knowing there were three agents being interviewed, and you were the first, Going on a listing appointment was more stressful than in Wespac.

Hello Dan,  I feel very honored that I was able to visit the Memorial of Pearl Harbor, before his passing. He served in the Navy in WWII at 17 years old.  Merry Christmas!

My dad was in the nacy in WWII with the pacific fleet.  9 battle stars on his chest.  We were on Oahu in 1974 with him and it as a very somber experience for him
