Aloha Friday Photo: Veterans Day 2011 Edition

We veer a bit away from our normal light-hearted Aloha Friday Photos to something with a bit of a serious tone. With today being Veterans Day in the U.S., let’s remember the sacrifices of our service men and women.

Please make the effort to thank a veteran today. If you don’t have the opportunity to extend your personal gratitude, please consider making a donation to the USO , an organization  that does so much to assist our service men and women.

If you are a veteran reading this post, we at Go Visit Hawaii want to say mahalo nui loa (thank you very much) for your service!

Today’s Aloha Friday Photo is of the oil seeping from the sunken USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor, where oil has been seeping daily for nearly 70 years. It’s a continual reminder of the many fallen veterans who sacrificed their life in protecting our country.

Mahalo to Charles Jordan from our facebook community for sharing his photo with us on this Veterans Day Aloha Friday.
