It was exciting to help maintain such a precious piece of American history!

The Pearl Harbor experience was surreal and a wonderful time. It is especially meaningful to be there the night of Dec. 6th and the morning/day of Dec. 7th.

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience reconstructing the Pearl Harbor attack, the response, the aftermath and life aboard an Iowa Class battleship. The program is well planned, professionally executed and highly educational. Rose is a terrific leader. Keven and Stacy manage the volunteers so that each participant can make a contribution and also have the freedom to explore and learn according to their interests. The group was a good size, dedicated to the purpose and flexible in outlook and attitude. A 5 Star experience for this fan of big gun capital ships and WW II naval history. I will do it again. -- Bruce Simonton

The time on the Missouri took me back fifty + years to my time in uniform. The hands on review brought back many happy memories.

This was an awesome experience. Getting to be a part of mainiaining history was very exciting. Also, being able to see so many areas of the battleship that aren't always opened to the general public made us feel very special. The knowledge of the USS Missouri's history and her experiences are deintely ones that everyone should get to know. She will always be a reminder of what Americans should be very gratelful for, our freendom!

After working on the USS Missouri for a week, I felt so proud to be part of the history of this magnificent battleship. Planning my visit there for the December 7th ceremonies and sleeping on the ship the night before was a wonderful experience. If you love World War 11 history, warm weather and beaches in December, and the opportunity to contribute this is the program for you.

Paulette from Franklin, WI Number of programs attended: 5

This was an honor to work on the USS Missouri. This program brought together a diverse group of interesting people who felt the same. Sleeping aboard was a special treat, and attending the Pearl Harbor ceremony a moving experience. Great program. I now understand the attraction to the beauty, warmth, and history of the island. The people are very warm and friendly!

This is the kind of service project that revitalizes my soul.
