Mostly those that perished on the Arizona remain entombed
on the Arizona. When I was 17 I visited both the Arizona
and the Punchbowl. It was moving. The view from the
Punchbowl was breathtaking as I recall. I cannot recall
if I saw the name Charles M Boyd at either location.
What did get to me was seeing all the names on the white
marble wall over the Arizona and knowing that those that
perished, those still beneath me, were about the same age
as I was at the time. Just boys. All dead.

When I am in Honolulu, I plan to go the Punchbowl? Cemetery to try and find
Charles M Boyd from the USS Arizonia on Friday 28 November. So I will see
what listing they have for Boyd's in this war cemetery.
