    I plan to be there right away early on Saturday morning!

    If you're there, look for me under an NRA Life Member hat:

    We start our trip to Hawaii that afternoon though, so I won't be there as long as I'd like. :)

    I was stationed at the Barbers Point Naval Air Station in Hawaii from 1959-1962, haven't been there since, hated that damn island..

    I'm on Maui and it's really very nice, but we did fly over to see the Arizona and the Missouri at Pearl.....I wasn't real impressed with Honolulu.....

    Maui is much more laid back..... :)

    Apparently your old base closed in 1999...... http://ludb.clui.org/ex/i/HI3136/
