USS Arizona Memorial, Hawaii

USS Arizona Memorial.

The terrible events of December 7, 1941, are memorialized at Pearl Harbor, simply a short drive from downtown Honolulu. The USS Arizona lies where it sank, the resting location of over a countless the U.S. sailors who passed away in the Japanese attack.

In 1962 the memorial was opened, with a structure built over the ship that enables you to see its remains poking out of the shallow water below; a marble wall within is etched with the names of the honored dead. A visit to Pearl Harbor will leave you with a palpable sense of the history that was made there.
