My Visit to Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor

While vacationing in the Hawaiian Islands, I visited the World War II memorial atop the sunken U.S. battleship Arizona, a monument to those who died in the attack on Pearl Harbor. On board, I slipped on a stairway and injured my thumb.

Back home, with the thumb still not healing properly, I called my doctor for an appointment. When I was asked the nature of my illness, I thought I’d give the background and began, “I was injured at Pearl Harbor –“

“Well,” the nurse interrupted. “It took you long enough to report it!”
