penguin chick pictureHI EVERYBODY!!

Penguins don't have wars. We do have fights with polar bears and sea lions for food and stuff but that's about it.

Why do humans have wars?

Pearl Harbor is still an active military location, as well as the sight of the Arizona Memorial and the USS Missouri. The Missouri has seen active duty as recently as the Gulf War, and is ready to be called into service if needed.
Lei's are tossed into the harbor to honor those who gave their lives in service to our country.
