USS Arizona Under Attack in Pearl Harbor
December 7, 1941

The USS Arizona was a United States Navy, Pennsylvania Class, BB-39 battleship. It was commissioned in 1916 and it was in service during both World War I and World War II. It was sunk into Pearl Harbor by Japanese fighter planes on December 7, 1941. The sunken ship and many of its 1177 crew members remain at the bottom of Pearl Harbor today. A memorial has been erected over it. The USS Arizona Memorial is the most popular visitor attraction in Hawaii.
