USS ARIZONA MEMORIAL
On the morning of Dec. 7, 1941, Japan made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor Honolulu, Hawaii. The USS Arizona was hit by a 1,760-pound armor piercing bomb, and when the vessel sank, 1,177 men onboard lost their lives, and 337 crew members survived. In 1962 a white, open-air shrine was dedicated above the water which covers the ship, the names of those who lost their lives are inscribed on the memorial. Visitors can reach the memorial by boat from the Visitor Center on the opposite side of the Pearl Harbor channel.
