On our last trip to Hawaii, we went to the USS Arizona Memorial (as we always do) and were to happy to see a special friend who had come all the way from Japan. Her name is Naomi Shin, and she is the daughter of Zenji Abe, the Japanese Warrior who is featured in our Pearl Harbor Warriors book and DVD.

Naomi's father is the pilot with his goggles ready to board his plane for the attack on Pearl Harbor. Many years after the attack he and Sgt. Richard Fiske overcame suspicion and hatred to become great friends. This friendship is the story told in our award-winning "Warriors book."

It was great to renew our friendship with Naomi, and we are SO pleased that is is able to come to Pearl Harbor for these special events.
